software update and getting ready for mbed

Post by basicchip » Sat Jun 07, 2014 10:42 pm

The latest compiler version 8.32 which has changes for LPC4330 and mbed boards which will be coming soon. You can download this from

www.coridium.us/files/BTupdate.zip

The BASICtools will now handle driver updates for FTDI, Teensy or mbed USB devices.

To use it, unzip and copy the contents into the /Program Files/Coridium directory

FYI

with no USB connected device
it asks about the FTDI,Teensy, mbed usb -- I answer no/none

then it reports can't find COM86 - it used to say COM9 !!!!

* * * * * * * * * * *
I forgot to select my editor when I first ran the new update and
it did report ::

couldn't execute "C:\PROGRA~1\PROGRA~1\pn.exe": no such file or directory
couldn't execute "C:\PROGRA~1\PROGRA~1\pn.exe": no such file or directory
while executing
"exec "$::editor" "$file2edit" &"
(procedure "openEditor" line 12)
invoked from within
"openEditor "C:/Coridium/basic/BASIClib/HWPWM8.BAS""
(menu invoke)

*************
I have a pn.exe in my arduino file chain !!!! but that is all!!
[I thought you used CE !!! I'm doing NP++ ver 6.6.x

In both cases com9 and com86 do not exist, I changed the default with no serial ports to com86 as you will get 86'd when you try to use it. There is really no good answer here until there is a com port of some sort, and long ago when there were none BASICtools behaved badly, maybe it doesn't anymore. But while it is possible for people to have a com9, it is unlikely they would have a com86, and if a user says he was trying to connect to it, I would know what the problem is.

I do use Crimson Editor, but don't recommend it, the installer installs Notepad++, maybe I should update, but it is not a priority as I don't do a full install anyway as I try to keep the install files small so they don't take too long to download. My assumption is if a user likes Notepad++, he'll go ahead and get the update which also pulls in all the documentation.

Not sure what pn.exe is. Your directory structure looks a bit odd C:\PROGRA~1\PROGRA~1\pn.exe sounds like /Program Files/Program Files

pn is programmer's notepad and it is installed with the arduino set of tools

my arduino (as well as Coridium) is installed in c:\ !!! NOT "Program Files\...."
so that default came from ???? did someone else (?Michael) use pn.exe??
perhaps during evaluation or a minor repair ??

You know - that might be some old residue of mine. I was looking at other
editors but deleted them and was using npp again, and had it selected and used for several days !!--before I did the update
the Windows prefetch file was time-stamped for about that time.
I called up pn.exe and it didn't look anything like what I saw- all AVR settings
NON-ISSUE but it is puzzling how tcl chose that editor

MBED - any particular LPC chip that is/will be ready for mbed type of download ?? 4330?? - as it seems one vendor
is having trouble with the usb loading of programs and has fallen back to the mbed platform for programming.
'
Just curious
8/20 Question has been answered - I just saw your 'Home' webpage with a link and info on the mbed platform and future direction !!!!

Added support for the ArchPro which is mostly mbed compatible. The standalone BASIC always worked, but the ArchPro handles its Mac address differently. That has been accounted for in our startup code. So the ArchPro specific code can now be downloaded from

www.coridium.us/archpro.php

In addition we added support for the mbed LPC1114 version.
