General Compiler questions

Postby tonyp12 » Mon Sep 14, 2015 2:53 am

As I use IAR Workbench I'm used to a IDE that does it all.

What I assume so far:
The ESP8266 have no programming pins like jtag/swd pins, just a rom loaded uart bootstrap loader.

I can get a evolution version of XCC compiler made by the people who created the Xtensa LX106 core this chip use.
Is a IDE version is also available, that incorporate the uart programming system it uses?

You have to re-flash everything from scratch every time, even the main SDK that runs the wifi hardware and tcp stack,
It does not allow you to tuck it away in fixed flash location and then use fixed address lib call, to save upload time?

Only debugging is using printf() or a LED, no way of breakpoints and viewing symbolic memory and hardware registers.

As you have to share the mcu, you should base your code using freeRTOS. Though there is also a statemachine system you can use.

Sorry that we do not have the IDE now.

Thanks for your interest in ESP8266 !
