Hello,

I am thinking about suggesting to buy the IAR compiler for the company I work for, because of support for 256k Flash devices.

One question:

Is the current IAR compiler copy protected with a hardware dongle?

Regards:

Why don't you ask IAR? AFAIK, there are two options: PC hardware locked and dongle locked licence. Hardware locked can be exported to other computer or changed to dongle locked at a later time.

IAR will supply at, a price, a dongled version or a computer locked version. Either one requires you contact them for a (very long) password\code after installaton.

Keep it simple it will not bite as hard

I use the IAR compiler at work, and I highly recommend it.

Just be aware of the level of support they have for the ATMEL JTAGs. (Currently the MkII JTAG only works through the serial port.)

Otherwise its pretty much plug and play.

Get the hardware Dongle, then you can work on more than one machine.

I can clearly underline that.

I wanted to use the computer locked version, but they always told me this is not possible and I would have to use the dongle instead.
This works fine, unless you use more than one of their compilers (I use IAR on AVR and MSP430 at the moment). Two dongles will not work concurently, you always have to disconnect the other one first. Very annoying.

If you talk to IAR can they not supply code locked to a common dongle; In the back of my mind, a place that seems to be drifting from reality more and more each day,
I am sure I heard this mentioned.

=========
Beat em at what? Is there a compiler test suite? Whats it test? How do the other compilers rate? Where can we get a copy?

You can put lipstick on a pig, but it is still a pig.

I've never met a pig I didn't like, as long as you have some salt and pepper.
