[TriEmbed] Vikram's KL-25z blinky program Re: TriEmbed Digest, Vol 35, Issue 3

The mbed dev platform might be an alternative for Vikram.  I poked 
around a few minutes on mbed.com and there appears to be support for the 
KL-25z board:
https://developer.mbed.org/handbook/mbed-FRDM-KL25Z

I've found the STM32 "Nucleo" boards to be trivial to use with mbed for 
the simple use cases I've explored (ramming data out to an SPI bus, for 
example). I use an alternate web browser with the virtual disk volume 
set up as the default download directory (folder), so it just takes a 
few mouse clicks to build and download and run a new program iteration. 
Gene Kahn and I briefly tried mbed out some months back and confirmed 
the integration with the Mercurial VCS is simply fantastic: we could 
work in the same workspace at the same time and it seamlessly 
coordinated edits and kept our views sync'd with reality. Gene created 
an account intended for TriEmbed collaborations that we used for these 
experiments.

But if the KL-25 is supported as well as the page above implies, perhaps 
Vikram can just bypass local OS headaches long enough to get his LEDs 
blinking?

Vikram: If you'd like to bring your board and USB cable to the meeting 
this Monday evening to explore mbed I'd be happy to try to facilitate 
that. (But please come even if this is no longer relevant!)

Finally, this page discusses export of mbed workspaces to offline 
toolchains. It's on my list to explore the "Exporting to Make (GCC ARM 
Embedded" avenue:

https://developer.mbed.org/handbook/Exporting-to-offline-toolchains

If this can be made to work I think it would be a mighty sweet 
combination of tools.

PS The MAY MEETING NEXT MONTH WILL BE IN ENGINEERING BUILDING 3 rm 2201. 
THAT'S *NEXT* MONTH.
