    Hello everybody and thanks always.

    I am researching about the STM8 line of microcontrollers.

    I read that you can use IAR to write programs. Apparently you can use something called ST Visual Develop with a Cosmic Compiler...I haven't use any of them.

    Is there anyone with STM8 experience here??

    For different reasons (I am working with STM32 as well ) I am planning to install Eclipse and GCC in my computer. But my HDD is getting very full so I dont think I can install another IDE.

    So my question is 1) Can I program STM8 with eclipse??

    and second 2) If I choose IAR to program the STM32, do I have to install two versions (STM32 and STM8) to address both needs

    Any advice will be very much appreciated

    yes, if you can configure eclipse for that.

    No, if the IDEs are the same version. I have a version of IAR running that supports stm32, msp430 and stm8 for example.

    Thank you for your reply.
    The free version of IAR has a size limitation , doesn't it? (currently a program I am working on uses 36.6Kb flash 3.6K RAM)
