I'm searching for a simple example of code (like open a window) and how to compile with GCC from ADE (command line to use NDK).

Can anybody help me ?

Thank you ! (a simple Hello world inside a workbench window will be nice)

ps: I'm using Coffin OS R58

Try EXTERNAL LINK and look at the ROM Kernel Reference Manual for starters.

There's a CBM example in the RKRM files you can find on Aminet.
One is called intuitext.c it opens a screen, a window, write Hello world then wait a bit and quit.
code below.

;/* intuitext.c - Execute me to compile me with SAS C 5.10
LC -b1 -cfistq -v -y -j73 intuitext.c
Blink FROM LIB:c.o,intuitext.o TO intuitext LIBRARY LIB:LC.lib,LIB:Amiga.lib
