'[PIC] MPLAB C-compilers questions'
|I'm using PIC12 and PIC16-devices for all my projects, I have not yet
emerged to the higher series. I need more practise before doing so.
Up to now, I've been programming in assembler using MPLAB, but I
thought it could be worth a try to use a C-compiler, just for the sake
of testing. However, I'm not quite sure of how to accomplish this.
When installing MPLAB v8.0 yesterday, it seems I got some Microchip
C32-compiler and some "PICC". Further browsing on microchip.com they
seem to have a student version (that is, it's eligble for me) of C18,
but that seems to be for PIC18-devices only. So, I guess this "PICC"
is The Compiler I should use.
But, here's the catch: I have yet not found any good clues of how to
setup some test-code. For assembler, Microchip ships a lot of
templates I can use, so I simply copy-paste these to my code directory
and start the coding. For C, it seems to be a bit trickier.
I'm not yet interested in creating any "real" code, just for the sake
of coding some C, step-debug it and see the disassembly of the code,
and so on. Just to get a hang of it.
The doc/help-section at microchip.com doesn't contain anything useful
for me, so I'm pretty blind of where I'm supposed to start off.

C18 is for 18 series devices only but it is well documented, well
integrated in MPLAB and the "student edition/demo" version has
relatively few restrictions.

Although microchip ship PICC lite with mplab it is not a microchip
product. If you are looking for documentation for it you will need to
check out hi-tech's website. PICC lite is quite heavilly restricted in
terms of program size and selection of chips supported too.
I would suggest getting some 18F series devices and starting out with C18.

I haven't gotten into using C for the PIC MCUs, yet, but I have looked at a
lot of the available info. Someday, in my "free" time (retirement is in 30
Here are a couple of links that may help:
You can also Google picc+compiler for lots of hits.
