What is your recomended compiler for ARM processors
« on: September 25, 2009, 01:32:09 AM »
Hi Mark,

JUst out of interest which compiler to you think is the best for ARM development GCC (Rowley), IAR or Keil. Which in your experience produces the fastest most compact code. And also have you come across any significant bugs in any of them. I use Rowley at the moment but am thinking about wether to upgrade or switch compilers. Just today I've hit a problem where it looks like my code is compiling incorectly but this could just be optomisation screwing with the debugging.

Cheers

Martin

Hi Martin,

if you download one of the demo projects from Mark's site, you have
the possibility to use all of these tools (comilers) with little effort.

I've finische a project jusing a luminary device. The most code efficient
compiler has been IAR (KickStart Ed.). If this compact code is also the
fastest one I have no idea, since it has not been a real issue in my project.

GNU in general tends to generate a little bit more code in my project.

And I haven't use Keil.

Cheers
Markus
