Slickedit as IDE for target MCU development???
« on: September 04, 2006, 08:21:14 pm »
I'm searching for an universal IDE for all my MCU ANSI C compilers (motorola,Fujitsu,Intel..)
Is it possible to configure SlickEdit to compile/make/link and parse errors from different compilers without setting up an external make tool???

No, it will not recognize your compiler, or make use of it's project files by default.  If they all followed GCC's option name/format, maybe it would be possible, but unfortunately, there is no standard.  So driving the compiler is often very different between manufactures.  Some environments are a little tougher as they also expect a particular layout that's enforced by the embedded compiler vendor's IDE.

With that said, I do a ton of work with embedded microcontrollers, and use SCons to build the target images.  SlickEdit's ability to drive just about anything through a command line is what really makes that possible.  The command line is your friend. :-)
