  Any comment will be helpful.

While I like the compiler, I must say that when it comes to target communicatios (using Spec Dig JTAG emulator) is the most crash-prone piece of software that I have ever run on a Windows platform, hands down. I have to kill it with Task Manager and clean up remnant processes many times per day. I expect much higher reliability for software that costs thousands of dollars! John

I found that CCS 3.0 was completely stable and rock steady as long as the program running on the target behaved itself. As soon as the target program started doing erratic things (corrupting a function pointer and trying to execute hyperspace in my case), CCS 3.0 would lock up and crash constantly. Of course, when your code is misbehaving is exactly when you need a solid, stable debugger... Luckily, I've not committed any more schoolboy howlers since I've been using 3.1, so I can't comment on that. Cheers mark-r -- "Let's meet the panel.

I had to laugh when I saw the phrase "rock solid" mentioned in connection with CCS. In my case it crashes regularly even when not attached to the target, with the emulator's USB port disconnected. When CCS boots it gives an error, with an option to Abort, Retry, or Ignore. I hit Ignore, and CCS comes up with "Emulator Disconnected" in the bottom tray. Projects load and compile, as expected. Then at random times CCS freezes up and has to be killed with Task Manager. Argh! John

You have my sympathy, but I have to say I've never had a moments trouble with it, except when my target code was broken. I have a Spec. Dig. DM642 EVM (600MHz version) and an XDS560. I've installed it on a few different machines with various hardware, etc (the XDS560 doesn't work with a Coreco PC-DIG framegrabber, but otherwise no problems). Maybe I've just been lucky :-) Cheers mark-r -- "Let's meet the panel. You couldn't ask for four finer comedians - so that answers your next question..." -- Humphrey Lyttleton
