As a experienced pro programmer, I'd like to join the group that despises the "var" keyword. It might be compile time typesafe, but it's still an abomination. (Among others it makes the code less readable I think)

The NutOS works perfectly, without any tweaks. (Has a full ethernet stack.)

In Topic: Compiling netmf with GCC4.2

04 March 2011 - 03:20 PM

For building SPI stuff, I'd recommend not messing with custom firmware. (If you can avoid it.) The best compiler you can get is the RVDS compiler. The newer GNU (gcc 4.5) is not bad either though. The issue with netmf is that it's only officially supported by gcc 4.2. Which isn't that impressive. (You'll get too big images.) This issue is enhanced by the fact that neither Microsoft nor Secret Labs are putting much efforts into supporting GNU. The question about image sizes is only really important on very small boards (like the Netduino). The rest of the world has plenty of storage space. (No one has ever complained about the GNU image size on eg. *nix.) A block btw, is often used for defining the minimum write size on a flash. In this case it's 8k. (I think the Atmel blocks are really 256b though. Meh, who cares.) Btw, Secret Labs are planning an upgrade to ease custom firmware. So that we won't have to buy RVDS or recompile the whole netmf.

In Topic: Reset

Oh, sry for not answering. Yes, the Register class is custom firmware that gives direct access to the memory: http://forums.netdui...afe-port-access And this reset method is just a proof of concept. It doesn't call the builtin .NET MF reboot. It makes the processor reboot by calling the builtin registers directly. (It's an actual low level reset.)

Can you provide more detail about what you're referring to or post a URL to what you were reading?

The following is not one of my 'readings' but it does hint at the issue:

It also states however that it *is* possible to create pic. Both with THUMB and ARM. And it gives away that the RVDS compiler has solved the issue.
We however, have to make it work with GNU. I'll see if I can dig up my other source.
