Getting started with the KDS "Hello World" on OS X

I consider myself a competent embedded systems programmer with (long distant) experience with Eclipse, but a newcomer to the KDS environment.

 

I've recently taken on the task of developing for the FRDM-KL27Z (MKL27Z64xxx) using KDS v3 IDE with the  SDK_2.1_FRDM-KL27Z SDK.  

 

There's just one problem: as a Mac OS X user, I've not yet figured out how to compile, download, run and debug the "Hello World" example with just a USB cable.  I've seen suggestions that I can run OpenOCD on the Mac, but I haven't been able to stitch together enough context to configure the toolchains and make that work.

 

So: 

 

* Is it possible to drive a FRDM board from a Mac via USB?

* If so, can you provide me with a detailed recipe, or pointer to same?

* If not, will the SEGGER J-Link EDU work?  (And is there a detailed recipe for the SEGGER under OS X?)

 

Many thanks in advance.
