RE: Re: MSL Libraries with CodeWarrior version 5.0. 3

Why is this issue and "new dll" only of concern to Art and not being posted
as a general update?. Let the end user decide if this is needed. We have
not installed 5.03 because of the issues that are being raised and if
problems are being fixed, why isn't the whole user community be advised of
the fixes?

John,

Thanks very much for this fix, I will install it right away.

The new cc_m56800.dll that you sent me has indeed fixed the other
problem we were having. I would like to extend my sincere thanks to
you, and everyone else at Metrowerks who was involved in fixing this
problem. Your very fast response and bug fix has greatly helped us in
our efforts to meet several critical deadlines, and has also greatly
pleased senior management here. We are also looking forward to being a
Beta Test Site for the next major release of CodeWarrior for Motorola
DSP56800, and working together with you on future improvements and bug
fixes. Please pass on my sincere thanks to all of your team who were
involved in this effort. Thank you.

Sincerely,

Subject: [motoroladsp] Re: MSL Libraries with CodeWarrior version 5.0.3 Art,

I have sent you a separate email that I think should address this
issue. Since I believe this issue to be specific to your setup, I am
not going to post the solution on the newsgroup. However, I want
everyone to know that there are no issues with the R5.0.3 MSL
libraries.

Regards,
John

Because it has not been tested, it takes time for a fix to be validated
would you have us post it only to find it affects something else. Art can
test it on his own code to see if it causes any problems there but we need
to test it much further than one program.

What do you mean? You do know about it, you are asking about it :)

Frankly I think the compiler bug is pretty unique, it slipped by because we
had no validation to test the exact circumstances in which it happens (we do
now thanks to Art).

As for the MSL issue that appears to be a problem with Arts setup (access
paths order / headers /libraries) getting out of sync. I think we have
gotten this straightened out and Art is testing that too we should know soon
on that.
