It’s a lot of stuff:
- a pretty complete meta-compiled ITC Forth for the TI MSP430
- lots of AVR goodies: assembler and disassembler; Flash programming support; incomplete Forth meta-compiler
- beginnings of PIC18 support: assembler and disassembler; rudimentary Flash programming support for a few variants
- lots of Cortex-M support: complete assembler and disassembler for ARMv6-M; disassembler for a subset of ARMv7-M; debug connections to ST-LINKv2, TI’s ICDI, and Freescale/ARM’s CMSIS-DAP
Sadly, there is still very little documentation.
Yesterday, just as I was pondering the future of the company, I got an email from Freescale about a proposed merger with NXP. I had no choice but to wonder: NXP and Freescale: Better together?
I just wrote a short piece about why I’m not using Disqus on this site. I basically decided that the privacy issues were too big to ignore.
Happy 2015! (rather belated)
I’ve decided to make a few changes here. I’m working on changing the way the site is generated so that less long-form text ends up on the “journal” pages – where it is difficult to link to – and instead mostly lives on “subject” pages, which are easy to link to.
I’m also now generating “canonical URL” link rel elements so that pages that are symlinked to become the canonical URL. This, together with the change that the top-level
index.html file symlinks to
<year>-journal/index.html, means that if people make links into the top-level page, next year those links will still work.
As always, I bemoan the fact that I haven’t been writing here as much as I would like. This site somehow remains a clunky mess, no matter how much thought, time, and energy I put into improving it. I guess that’s one of the fundamental truths of the web.
