codewarrior 10.1    MCF52233   printf

I am using codewarrior 10.1 Targeting a MCF52233 on a demo board. 


When I create a bareboard project and have codewarrior create main.c there is a printf statement in the code.   I want the text in the printf to go out uart0 so that I can capture the string on hyperterminal connected to the board’s DB9.


What I have done:

I generated the project and chose “None” for Rapid application development..

I edited support_common.h and set ENABLE_UART_SUPPORT to a 1.

I edited main.c and added:

#include “uart_support.h”

and I added:




Note that: TERMINAL_PORT and SYSTEM_CLOCK_KHZ and TERMINAL_BAUD are set in mcf52233_sysinit.h.


When I debug the code the printf is definitely executed however hyperterminal never receives the string.


FYI:  I set hyperterminal to


8 data bits

no parity

1 stop bit

no flow control



I suspect this is probably something trivial to fix however I haven’t found the solution yet – any suggestions?
