16Eric Norum (eric@@skatter.usask.ca) wrote a driver for a parallel
17port interface to a BDM module.  He and Chris Johns (ccj@@acm.org)
18have put together a package containing everything you need to
19use this.  From the README: "This
20package contains everything you need to be able to run GDB on
21Linux and control a Motorola CPU32+ (68360) or Coldfire (5206, 5206e, or
225207) target through a standard PC parallel port." Information on
23this is available at the following URL:

26Peter Shoebridge (peter@@zeecube.com) has ported the Linux
27parallel port BDM driver by Eric Norum to Windows NT.  It is
28available at http://www.zeecube.com/bdm.

31The efi332 project has a home-built BDM module and gdb driver for
32Linux.  See http://egi332.eng.ohio-state.edu/efi332/hardware.html)

58Christian Haan <chn@@intego.de> has written a driver for FreeBSD
59based for"a slightly changed ICD BDM module (because of changes
60in the BDM interface on the PowerPC)" that "probably will work with
61the PD module too."  His work is based on the M68K BDM work by
62Gunter Magin (Gunter.Magin@@skil.camelot.de) and
63the PPC BDM for Linux work by Sergey Drazhnikov (swd@@agua.comptek.ru).
64This is not yet publicly available.

66Sergey Drazhnikov (swd@@agua.comptek.ru) has written a PPC BDM driver for
67Linux.  Information is available at http://cyclone.parad.ru/ppcbdm.

73GDB includes support for a set of primitives to support the Macraigor
74Wiggler (OCD BDM).  Unfortunately, this requires the use of a
75proprietary interface and is supported only on Windows.  This forces
76one to use CYGWIN.  Reports are that this results in a slow
77interface.  Scott Howard (http://www.objsw.com) has announced
78that support for the gdb+wiggler combination under DJGPP which should
79run significantly faster.
