Hi A colleague of mine is using MPLAB C compiler and is struggling with the saving of registers in ISRs.

I'm in the process of choosing between either using Microchip's C18 compiler or the CCS compiler. I've read the comparisons as far as features go and both are comparable although CCS does seem to have somewhat more features. But one of the really big factors is simply how big the developer communities compare. How much sample code is there on the web for both compilers. When I google the k...
