linux toosl for PIC32MX development

Started by Randy Yates June 12, 2010
Hi,

I'm going to be doing some PIC32 development and I'd love to do it under
linux if I'm able. We have a PIC32MX and the Microchip ICD2 "hockey
puck" JTAG.

I don't care so much about an IDE - I'd rather build my stuff using
emacs/gnumake. But what I need are:

 1. A cross-compiler/assembler/linker that runs under linux
 2. The debugger.

Keep in mind we also have the MPLAB software - we've bought several
development boards. But as far as I've seen, this stuff all runs
under Windoze and not linux.

Can anyone give me some pointers/clues? Any help would be appreciated.

The ability to do a web search is an asset. Perhaps you should have viewed that as "constructive criticism"?

I don't believe I indicated otherwise.

Perhaps you should learn or review combinatorics: There are almost 500,000 possible combinations of Just one four-letter term from the 26 letters of the English alphabet. Knowing, or guessing, the correct terms to get the information you seek is often not as straightforward as you two seem to believe, and even once you've got a "good" combination, sorting through the mountains of useless information to get to a few good bytes is often time-consuming and error-prone. So, while I appreciate the response to my request, I in no way apologize for it. -- Randy Yates % "Bird, on the wing, Digital Signal Labs % goes floating by mailto://yates@ieee.org % but there's a teardrop in his eye..." http://www.digitalsignallabs.com % 'One Summer Dream', *Face The Music*, ELO
