Export GCC ARM Embedded for nRF51822

Is there a plan to support exporting to GCC ARM Embedded for the Nordic nRF51822 target? Current the option is greyed out in the UI.

Count me as someone else who would also love to know if/when we'll be able to export to GCC ARM....Or at least approve my Compiler API request so I can compile offline.

Thanks for you interest. Is any of you familiar with writing linker script files and a startup file, if yes, add them to the mbed github repository for nordic.

We will look at this.

I've started some work on GCC ARM exporting. You can view the pull request here: https://github.com/mbedmicro/mbed/pull/337

I can run export_test.py, extract the result zip file, run make, and view that a binary was successfully created, all without any errors. The resulting binary does not seem to work when flashed onto the device, but the work so far should be a good starting point in order to make this exporter a reality. I welcome any help towards achieving this goal.
