In our current project we are using the MCF52277 and the secondary purpose of the project is to learn embedded Linux.

We are trying to determine the recommended/preferred development tools for this endevour.

In particular, we are trying to determine what the best (most reliable) hardware debugger is. A fellow collegue has used the BDI-3000 on another Coldfire processor, but some preliminary digging seems to suggest that this device does not support the MCF52277.

There are a lot of threads in the forum mentioning the Eclipse IDE. Is this the preferred IDE? Or do embedded Linux users prefer the command line?

Any direction would be appreciated.
