|#184557 - FAQ: chip agnostic environment|
Responding to: Kalpak Dabir's previous message
Keil uVision itself is chip agnostic - you get the same uVision over all Keil's toolsets (8051, 80251, C166, ARM). It's the build tools that make it specific to a particular architecture.
It's just that Keil don't make it "open" for you to add your "own" custom build tools.
But there would be nothing to stop you using the uVision editor to edit your source code - and other, chip-specific, tools to do the builds...
If you want something totally chip (or even language) agnostic, then Eclipse is that - but integrating your "own" tools with it is by no means trivial!!
Maybe it has already been done for the chips that you use...?
Another that gets frequent good mentions here is: Code::Blocks
Code::Blocks is a free C++ IDE built to meet the most demanding needs of its users. It is designed to be very extensible and fully configurable.
CodeWright can be used as an IDE; in fact, I think Tasking do use it as their IDE - so, if you request the Tasking evaluation, you will get a copy of CodeWright!
Notepad++ is also worth a look: http://notepad-plus-plus.org/
