Understood. But I’m not concerned with code file efficiency
at this stage. I just want to get going as fast as possible
with having the code generator generate ARM Thumb-1
code which I can instantly run.

BTW, I have now searched around the various possible
options for a board that I can use. So perhaps I end up
using an mbed-enabled board anyway, which uses a raw
BIN file not a HEX-format, as mentioned earlier by Chris.

I just haven’t decided yet..
