Hi folks-
 
I would like to integrate the firmware development of my current project with the software development in Visual Studio.  Previously, I was using Cygwin to build the SDCC part of the project with a Makefile.
 
I have it working now where I use custom build steps to call SDCC and ASX8051, but this seems more like a hack than anything else.  Is there a better way to integrate SDCC into the compile procedure in Visual Studio?  (I'm using .NET right now)
 
Note: I'm not talking about -building- SDCC.  I'm talking about building -with- SDCC.
 
Thanks for any suggestions!
 
   Cheers,
   Jake
