Using Visual Studio Code for ARM Development – Defines

It is common to pass defines to the compiler using flags at compile time.

-D_DEBUG
-DPART_TM4C123GH6PM

Setting these for VSCode is simple: just add them to the “defines” section of c_cpp_properties.json, without the -D flag prefix:

    "defines": [
        "DEBUG",
        "PART_TM4C123GH6PM"
    ],

This fixes all of the errors related to things defined in the libraries!

If the include paths and defines are properly set up in Visual Studio Code, the C/C++ plugin should be able to properly parse your code, identify syntax errors, and will provide Intellisense code completion to improve the speed and accuracy of your writing!
