Edwin-
Am posting the thread at c6x@yahoogroups too, i though its a more
relevant platform for this discussion for you to get more help and
answers.

Cc: , As you mentioned, 6711 used to have *ld* program in bin utils. I
havent checked for the same in c6713 but assuming that you have
checked and it is not there.If thats the case, then I guess(just
that!) TI is maneouvouring itself into a position where CCS is
indespensible for TI DSP debugging and algorithm development. Though I
have to admit that am surprised that TI would not provide a loader
program any more.

Anyways, many of the early attempts at having a non-CCS development
methodologies seem to have fallen by the way. Among the few remaining
non-CCS options what i would recommend is a software program called
DirectDSP made by one of our list's active member's
company-Signalogic. Not sure though if DirectDSP supports c6713 but
may be signalogic could help you on that.
