Title: 32bit ARM Development Pros/Cons
Post by: willisjr40 on March 19, 2019, 03:28:56 pm
I'm looking at possibly using Code::Blocks to develop code for a 32bit ARM processor by TI. Can anyone provide their pros and cons to using this IDE to do so. TI makes their own IDE for their Processors called Code Composer Studio, but I also have to think about future development.

I have into some issues of importing libraries and having to cross compile to 32bit for them to work on the Development Board I'm currently using. Any input would be appreciated.

I do know I have to add the correct compiler and toolchain set.

Vendor IDEs might be better integrated and would probably work out of the box.

Using C::B for embedded dev requires more fiddling and setup and also better understanding of internals.
Also current debugger experience is not the best in town. :(
