Ron - I'm using the IAR toolchain (free version). It has a code size limit
(that I haven't hit yet), but has a well-integrated debugger and good
documentation on configuring it for the STM boards. It was really easy to
configure and get it to compile the STM32LDISCOVERY code and download their
demo app & single step it.

The much harder part was understanding the supplied libraries and the
peripherals. :-(

Although this talks about the mbed, using with the LPC, STM, etc are all
pretty much the same. They're all Cortex-Mx based processors.

I haven't played with eclipse yet. I tend to prefer to use my own editor
along with hand-coded makefiles.
