To be more precise free Special Edition of CW for S12X v4.1 has 32k of C
code limit for S12X core and as you said it's quite a lot. 0.5k limit of C
code for XGATE core is adequate. XGATE is supposed to service interrupts and
DMA like stuff. So with 0.5k limit for XGATE C I can do a lot with
interrupts. Moreover assembly isn't limited so no problem to learn S12X and
more.
