"New Project" wizzard and Pins tool MCUXpresso for LPC845

1.) The wizzard asks for driver inclusion. Why aren't the chosen drivers not automatically included, e.g. #include "fsl_gpio.h" in main.c when I chose the GPIO driver in the wizzard?


2.) Why do I have to call e.g. GPIO_PortInit(GPIO, port) manually, although I chose a specific GPIO in the Pins tool? I would suggest this to be done automatically by the Pins tool in clock_config.c (or pinmux.c). I think to read



EDIT: Tutorial: Blinky with the NXP LPC845-BRK Board | MCU on Eclipse 


that on Kinetis version this is the standard (but haven't checked this).


EDIT: More bad on function WKT_Init(). DPDCTRL->LPOSCEN isn't set to "1" by this function when low power oscillator is chosen as clock source. Power has to be enabled manually in this case. This code doesn't work:

wkt_config_t wkt_config;
wkt_config.clockSource = kWKT_LowPowerClockSource;
WKT_Init(WKT, &wkt_config);

Changing the clock source and then init the peripheral doesn't work.



3.) LPC845-BRK example blinky: Why is GPIO configured twice? First in Pins tool (Direction: Output, GPIO initial state: 0, Mode: PullUp??? why this???) and then in main.c with "gpio_pin_config_t led_config" ?
