We're porting from the S12 to the S12X.  And guess what - the register names have changed.  Subtly, but significantly enough to cause hours of labor of senseless programming.  It also means that sharing files is going to be a lot more difficult.


So what kind of control does Freescale assert over its programmers?  Can just any programmer rename DDRK_DDK4 to DDRK_DDRK4?  Or does it need to get approved by the Board of Wasting Other Companies Time?


Shame on you Freescale.
