Using external SDRAM memory

Hi, this is a newbie question about using external memory with ColdFire processors.

From the programmer's point of view (using CodeWarrior for ColdFire), is the external memory handling the same as if it were internal? I mean it is usable as if it were internal memory, without any hassle.

Or is it like it's an external "hard drive", so the programmer has to first fetch the data into the internal memory of the microprocessor, do the processing then maybe write the result back to the external storage?

Thanks in advance:smileyhappy:
