This week’s presentation by Eric Smith will provide an overview of the available tools for C programming. A brief summary of the agenda for Eric’s presentation is:
– A look at C compilers available for the P2 today (p2gcc, Catalina, fastspin, riscvp2)
– Advantages and disadvantages of each
– Some benchmark comparisons
– Making code portable between compilers
– Use of spin2cpp to convert Spin2 drivers to C code

Graphical Debugging with Spin 2 from Chip Gracey Wednesday, August 12th at 3:00 pm Pacific
Chip will introduce the graphical debugger for PNut which turns debug commands into graphs. The system is currently set up for eight channels and 16 displays. The tool has been prototyped and developed in PNut and will eventually be brought into the Propeller Tool for Windows. Chip will post a version of PNut before the presentation (provided he resolves the malware threats/solution he’s currently experiencing with Windows).
Propeller Tool and Wireless Programming with the WX Module Jeff Martin and Michael Mulholland Wednesday, September 2nd, 11:00 am Pacific
Prepare yourself for a full hour-and-half of education and QnA from Jeff and Michael! The first part of the presentation shows how to use the Propeller Tool for Windows, including where to get source code, specifying top files and managing directories and different compilation methods (plus a few little known tricks!). The second portion of the presentation introduces the WX Adapter for the Propeller 2 Evaluation Board, and how to configure the WX Module for wireless programming of the Propeller 2. The WX Module is in stock and shipping already; we hope to have the WX Adapter for the Propeller 2 Evaluation Board ready for shipment at least a week before this presentation so others may try the setup on their own systems.
