New IDE integrates Visual SlickEdit and GNU X-Tools

Jan 30, 2003 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — 5 views

(PR excerpt) — Microcross Inc. announced Visual X-Tools version 1.0, a low cost, high powered, feature-rich Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for embedded systems developers.

The Visual X-Tools IDE augments the company's current GNU X-Tools product offering, a set of reliable, low cost and supported open source embedded development tools. The new IDE combines an extensive number of cross-compilers and Visual GDB debuggers from the GNU XTools product set with the full-featured build, editing and file differencing technologies of Visual SlickEdit to create a single package for the embedded systems developer.

Visual X-Tools is powered by the award winning Visual SlickEdit Editing Environment from SlickEdit Inc.. Microcross chose Visual SlickEdit as both the build framework and editor for its new Visual X-Tools IDE product because of its speed, flexibility and powerful editing features such as Context Tagging, syntax expansion, code beautification, code navigation and lookup, and selective display.

Microcross GNU X-Tools is built for over 20 CPU architectures (200+ variants) from one Microcross maintained source tree. Microcross supports multiple host and targets providing complete coverage from small, deeply embedded, real-time applications to very large-scale projects.

Prices start at $999.95 per seat for a single target toolsuite, and a downloadable free 30-day trial version is available by registering here.
