[SIZE=2][FONT=Tahoma]When debugging (with LPCXpresso 4.3.2) does it always burn to flash (assuming load = true) when internal flash is the target address even if the source code is unchanged?

This obviously wastes erase cycles and takes longer to get going. :(

Or is the debugger smart enough to compare current contents with the potential download image (constructed from the axf/elf file) and skip the pointless step.

What if one wants to flash regardless (I can't think why, but some -- perverse -- individual may want so to do).

Obviously, one can flip 'Load' on and off by hand, but this is a pain (in the ;)) and errors are just waiting to happen if you forget when the image [I]has[/I] changed.

Perhaps the 'load' configuration item should have an 'if changed' setting along with true/false.
