Have switched most of my computers to Linux Mint, and have been using SimpleIDE to program in C on the prop.
I have an upcoming project that will require close-tolerance timing of outputs, which I would usually turn to a mix of SPIN and PASM for, but have lost that ability with the latest version of SimpleIDE, which as far as I can see only allows C.
I have poked around a bit looking for information, much seems old and changing over time. I see an old thread (http://forums.parallax.com/discussion/161455/tool-for-spin-on-linux
) which details using OpenSpin and pi-propeller-load. Is this still the way to use SPIN from Linux ?
Or maybe a better way is to use PASM with C. Any instructions on how to do that within the SimpleIDE? How does one do In-line vs COG ? Is there any difference?
Also, I have kind of been ignoring the different memory models used when making a C program - any links to current documentation on how the different models work (LMM, CMM,COG etc) and what the heck is the fcashe and how does it come into play?
Sorry for what may seem to be a bucket of confused questions, love the prop and the 8 cores, no so much the development arena if not coming from Windows...
