I want to use the WDT in my Max32 application. It appears that the PostScaler value (time period) can only be controlled by setting a configuration variable.

I'm using MPIDE which apparently does not provide access to the configuration registers (at least not through #pragma config). How do I go about setting the WDT PostScaler value in an MPIDE sketch?

The WDT post scale value can be modified in the DEVCFG1 register. This register is described on page 1085 of this document:
