Thanks guys & sorry for the late feedback!
Well I can't remember now since I kept them in my boxes. All I could say is that I had determined that most're programmable using the SBW interface. I had this Microchip-ish dogma: the chip has to be identified first via the program. I suppose it's not important for Energia- hook it up to the Launchpad and whatever the target, the program will load anyway, is it?
I do have CCS, but that's the thing, I'd like to avoid even clicking on my CCS icon. It takes a lot of processing from my tiny netbook.
Thanks for the info. I'll look in
