CC5X and CC8E can be used in the MPLAB environment. Compilation, POINT-AND-CLICK on error messages is supported. Both single module and multi module projects is possible.
NOTE: Click here for MPLAB X support. The remaining text covers the older MPLAB IDE.
MPLAB version 6.61 - 8.92: will load the generated COD file automatically. It is required to carefully follow the steps described in INSTALL.TXT. Also visit the FAQ page.
For best information and integration, CC5X version 3.1I or later and CC8E version 1.0H or later should be used. Older compiler versions requires that option -FM is not used (option -F can be used instead).
