You have all the source for the libraries under 'src' in the
installation root for the AVR Workbench (which is in the directory
'D:/Program Files/IAR Systems/Ew23/avr' on my computer).
Basically what you have to do is to recompile the write formatter
(IIRC, in file frmwri.c, but you have to look that up) and maybe some
other files containing printf; If you just make a copy of them and add
them to your project the linker will select your functions instead of
those in the precompiled libraries.
There are some descriptions about this in the C Compiler Manual (look
for _formatted_write... at pages 32-38 in my version), but to get
support specifically on your problem I suggest you contact our support
department: they are really good at solving these kinds of problems
and have more experience with all the details.
You find them on:
You will also find application notes and technical articles at the
IAR Systems in Uppsala, Sweden.
