This paper presents uCR, a C++ runtime package for embedded program development. We make the case that in certain situations embedded programming is best done without the aid of a conventional operating system. A programming environment in the form of a C++ runtime is presented, and the environment, including the C++ language, is evaluated for appropriateness. Important factors are code size, performance, simplicity and applicability to a wide range of embedded targets.
