FlashMagic Supports Linux?
« on: August 25, 2006, 07:00:56 am »
Dear alls,

I just started learning C Programming with 8051.  
I use P89V51RD2 from Philips.
And I compile with SDCC  - Gnu GPL (opensource) C Compiler.

Now I work on Windows, I try to switch to Linux.

I am wondering, although it is a freeware, why FlashMagic does not supports for Linux?

Are there others software which work on Linux can flash P89V51RD2 ?

Best regards,

Visit my 8051 homepage:
Free 8051 resources are avaliable.

There isn't a Flash Magic version for Linux because 99.999% of 8051 developers seem to use Windows. You could try Wine though.

Some hints for using Linux for '51 development can be found in
There are also several other members of the forum who appear to be active Linux users, so if in troubles you could ask perhaps there.
