I am working with a k22 microcontroller. I wanted to use one of the UART s as a debug port.I was planning on using the debug console functionality and mapping the output to a UART to make this happen.so my PRINTF is remapped to the hash defined  DbgConsole_Printf . I had 2 questions regarding this.

 

1) I am assuming that by using the debug console PRINTF and not actual 'printf' I can reduce the code footprint.Is this correct. are there any other adv/disadvantages to using the DbgConsole_Printf ?

2) For some strange reason when i try to print out float values using DbgConsole_Printf , its not showing in the console..? integer and char format specifiers works just fine.Anyone has had similar problems or insights into this?
