By reading the descriptions of SYSBIOS, it looks like it will do what I need to do. The best part is that Texas Instruments offers SYSBIOS free. In fact it comes installed with the latest version of Code Composer Studio. According to the Texas Instruments website, Code Composer Studio is not necessary in order to be able to compile SYSBIOS. There are some instructions that I found on the Texas Instruments website that tell how to compile SYSBIOS on GNU compilers. That's about all I have to report for now. I will post more as I get into it a little deeper.
