First of all, thanks for providing this great forum and the WinARM
tools!  I have managed to successfully port my old Keil code to GNU, and
I am so excited I can't stand myself.

Second, if you are looking for a good, inexpensive code development
environment, I highly recommend UltraEdit (http://www.ultraedit.com/).
I was able to set up custom toolbar buttons for "make clean" and "make
all", and redirect the output to the lower list box.  This allows me to
easily compile and see the errors without opening a DOS window or typing
any commands, and, more importantly, if I click on an error in the lower
window, it automatically opens the file with the error and goes to the
line the error is on, much like the Keil development window.  This makes
for very fast debugging.

Thanks again,

Randall Aiken

I'm not using Ultraedit myself but the software has a very good
reputation and a lot more functions than Programmers Notepad which is
included in WinARM (and WinAVR). But Programmers-Notepad (PN) has most
of the functions you describe too. Instead of creating toolbar-buttons I
prefer "Hotkeys/keyboard-shortcuts" which are supported by PN. There is
no need to open a DOS-Box or touch the mouse to call the build-tools
with PN. PN can also parse the compiler-errors and jump to the line in
the source. Anyway, if you like Ultraedit stay with it.

The main reason I used UltraEdit was because I already use it for all my
Xilinx FPGA Verilog code, so I was glad it fit in so well with the
WinARM software - I now have a single editor that has the same
look/feel/features for all my development work.

Thanks!

Randall,
I'm also using Uedit.  Please tell me how you set it up to display the
compiler output in the lower list box.

regards

You set it up when you make the new toolbar buttons for the "make clean"
and "make all" functions.

Go to Advanced -> Tool Configuration (or Project Tool Configuration for
user-buttons that are specific to each project so you don't have to
change any path names when changing projects), then click on the
"Output" tab and select the "Output to list box" option.

If you need any help setting up the user buttons, let me know and I'll
post some screen captures of the settings I use.

I have some screenshots and notes on using Uedit with devkitPro which
should be equally applicable to winARM

Thanks Dave, I've read the web page and now I'm compiling from
UltraEdit!
I also have another Q:  where do I set the size of the DOS box (bigger)
and can I set it to stay open after the compile is complete.
