I noticed the following disclamer under the LPC2129 Keil port on the FreeRTOS website (http://www.freertos.org/portlpckeil.html):
Please note: The port requires the Keil DKARM compiler version 1.5 or later. This port has not yet been updated for the new ARM owned version of the Keil tools.
First off, what does this really mean? If I purchase the latest & greatest version of RealView MDK-ARM (http://www.keil.com/arm/rvmdkkit.asp) along with the LPC2129 board, will this run or not?
I guess I am confused as to whether the disclaimer means that the project files of the IDE will not be able to be opened because the port was done using an older version of the Keil DK OR that the compiled code will also not run because the compiler has also changed OR both of the above…
I hope my point is getting across. I like Keil tools but would not want to do too much work porting because the focus of my project is elsewhere. In that case I’d consider getting IAR tools because the LPC2129 port doesn’t have such a scary disclaimer and it would ostensibly work with the latest purchased version of the IAR toolset.
Ideally I’d like to get latest Keil MDK-ARM and the LPC2129 and have it work with little effort.
Any comments/suggestions/diatribes are most welcome
