Xpress Auto Program
The Xpress IDE is great especially when using it in conjunction with the Xpress Evaluation board. It's super simple to just drag-and-drop the HEX files over to the Xpress drive. However, if you are like me and tend towards the burn-and-learn methodology for your embedded software development, then doing this for the 384932598748 HEX files you generate can be a little grating (let alone when they get renamed to "MyProject (####).hex" and pollute your download folder).
I wrote a tool, in C# (sorry Mac+Linux people), which will monitor a folder for new HEX files, and then transfer them to an Xpress Evaluation board you have connected to your computer. It can remove the "(####)" portion tacked on also, so you just keep the latest file you've downloaded (at least this is the format Chrome does).
Essentially this just makes the already simple task of programming an Xpress board even easier.
