Image Downloading to target lpc1769

Post by anitasure123 » Thu Jan 14, 2016 7:25 am

Hello Sir,
Now from Astrobe IDE we can download the binary image of the current module, whose source code is in view in the editor window. My question is, Is it possible to download the binary image of the module whose source code is not in current editor window?

Thanks and Regards

No. This is as designed, to avoid the need to have to enter the path name of the executable when uploading (sic) to the target. Typically you want to upload the current application you are working on. If you want to upload a different application then you need to open the source code of its main module first.

Note however that uploading from the Astrobe IDE to FPGA RISC5 targets works differently. It prompts you for a list of object files to upload. This is because RISC5 applications are not uploaded as a single executable file that has been statically linked from its component modules. The Project Oberon OS does not require pre-linked executables. When you execute a command the OS application loader automatically dynamically links any imported modules that are not already loaded in memory.
