For some time now, I have been working on a makefile, which lets me compile an AVR32 program directly from the toolchain, without the bloated and bulky AS6. And I succeeded! Or so I thought.
When it came to interrupts, I failed. I never figured out how to add interrupts to an AVR32 program, and compile it solely through the toolchain. And others who have asked about this, have been told either some complicated stuff that I didn't understand, or "just accept that you have to use AS6/ASF".
So now I've capitulated. *sigh* But I still think that the AS6 text editor sucks bigtime. Is it possible to combine this with an external text editor? That is, either having AS6 activate a text editor, or remote control AS6 from the external text editor?
I remember when some unfortunate newbie asked why there was no IDE for the gnu compiler. He was nearly chastised for asking such a blasphemic question, and told in very clear language that such extravagance was completely unnecessary. And now we can't avoid the bloody thing. Sic transit gloria mundi.
