General Development

In Visual Studio 2017 15.5 Preview 2 we are introducing support for cross compilation targeting ARM microcontrollers. To enable this in the installation choose the Linux development with C++ workload and select the option for Embedded and IoT Development. This adds the ARM GCC cross compilation tools and Make to your installation.

Our cross compilation support uses our Open Folder capabilities so there is no project system involved. We are using the same JSON configuration files from other Open Folder scenarios and have added additional options to support the toolchains introduced here. We hope that this provides flexibility for many styles of embedded development. The best way to get started with this and understand the capabilities is with a project exported from the ARM mbed online compiler. We'll cover the basics here, to learn more about the online compiler see ARM’s tutorials, and you can sign up for an account here.

Sorry, I mistakenly thought that orfanum and tidux were the same person.
My reply was to orfanum not tidux.

Then pretty soon you will end up removing words such as paranoid and schizophrenic, which are used metaphorically as well as in their purely medical senses,from people's registers. Where do you want to end? Do you wish to reduce language to a base literalness?

If you haven't understood, I am arguing for the inherent creativity and flexibility of language, not for the right to be hateful.

Creativity comes from limitations. And language doesn't need help in maintaining its flexibility. Language can't help but change.

Using terms like autism, schizo and other such words are inherently uncreative. Would you judge someone who uses "fuck" as their only adjective as creative?
