Hi Paul

Yes, i'm more inclined for free tool chains, however CrossWorks (CW) is great!! there is no doubt about it. The compiler, downloader and debugger are amazing.

But since my point of view, like an IDE CW needs more options for editing and personalizing. I've been working with CodeWarrior and Eclipse for a while and I found them excelent IDEs. I love the autocompletion and user colors in both, but CW lacks of that =(. I spent a lot of time in front of the PC, so I've changed the background of any program I use to black, whereas for foreground I use few other colors (I need to care about my sight and eyes =) ). Typing big names and the IDE to complet them for you has no price =) (or when it give you the choice to get an option from a list with the fields in a struct/class). Thats the reason I'd like to use Eclipse as an editor while CW as debugger/simulator.

By the way I cannot simulate neither my own projects nor those included in the installation. In both always send me to an exception handler =(. I'd like you to help me with this issue if you have time and enthusiasm.

Thanks in advanced =)

Personally I hate both of them.

CrossWorks certainly does have color schemes for the text editor that you
can pick from, or define your own.

Autocompletion is on the to-do list.

I'm pretty sure that you will probably need to set up the EMI registers.
