Code Warrior

Started by cwolfatwork February 3, 2003
I'm using Code Warrior, now, on a dsp56852, and, soon, on a
dsp56858. So far all of my experience is on the 852, and it's not
been a happy experience. The debugger is excruciateingly slow, and
the compiler has to be checked all the time to see what code it's
generating. So -- does anybody else make tools for the 56800e
family? BSO apparently doesn't support this family.



Charles,

Currently I don't believe there is another tools company supporting
the DSP56800E family of processors at this point. I would certainly
like to get your feedback (positive or negative) regarding using
CodeWarrior and see if I can possibly help you around any problems
you are currently having and also lend towards the future of the
product if you have some ideas/suggestions to make the product
improve.

Feel free to send me an email () and I will follow
up with you regarding your issues/problems, but to answer your
question I don't believe there are other tools vendors for the
DSP56800E family at this point (someone else can correct me if I'm
wrong).

I really think that with some feedback from you and some work we can
get you viewing your CodeWarrior experience in a more positive light.
When you send your email, be sure and mention which version of the
tools you are currently using, etc. so I can follow up with some good
suggestions and ideas.

Regards,
John

Hi!

I've started a project to create a complete tool chain for DSP56800 built on
GNU software. I've almost completed porting of binutils (assembler,
disassembler, linker) and next will be probably gcc and gdb. The project is
quite young so the work is ongoing. I'll post any releases I'll have ready for
use and testing also to this list. You can also check project statuc on
SourceForge:

http://sourceforge.net/projects/dsp56800

and

http://dsp56800.sourceforge.net/

If there is anybody interested to help don't wait and contact me so the work
would be done faster.

Regards
