What is the "Export Compiled Binary" menu option actually for?

Recommended Posts

Hi

Energia V1.8.7E2

OSX 10.14.5

I have been using Energia for a while now to program first a pair of CC1310 Launchpad boards and now the custom boards were designed with the information from that initial exercise. While the Launchpad boards can be programmed directly by Energia the custom boards have no XDS110 debugger interface so need to be programmed using the bootloader and UART. We accomplish this by using a USB->TTL serial adaptor and TI's Smart RF Flash Programmer 2 running in a Windows virtual machine.

The issue is this... to get the newly compiled .elf I have to navigate to a folder with a name similar to /var/folders/tn/mrcpkdls2fx208png2rqfvcr0000gn/T/arduino_build_222512/. This folder path and name changes on every rebuild so I have to search for it every time. Not ideal.

OK, so the questions are;

Can this output folder be changed and, if so, how?

What does "Export Compiled Binary" in the Tools menu do? On my system it compiles the current sketch but appears to do nothing else. It would be nice if it actually did something like allow you to save the compiled binary somewhere known on the drive.

Thanks
