MPLAB 5.70.40 is integrated with HI-TECH PICC compiler v8.02 PL1

Started by Bruce Sam October 15, 2004
   I have integrated MPLAB 5.70.40  with HI-TECH PICC compiler v8.02 PL1 but failed.When I only compiled just a simple .c file,it appear this message:MPLAB is unable to find output file "DELAY.HEX".
     This may be due to a compile, assemble, or link process failure.Here is all I have done:
1.Click on the Option menu in the mehu bar, and select Environment setup,in this new dialog box,I have setted Default language suite to HI-TECH PICC.
2.Click on the Project menu in the menu bar,and select Install Language Tool,in here,I have setted the location of the compiler,assembler and linker of the HI-TECH compiler that I have installed.The executable for all three tools(compiler/assembler/linker) is setted to picc.exe.
3.I have added two environment variable showed below:
HTC_ERR_FORMAT=Error[000] %f %l : %s
HTC_WARN_FORMAT=Warning[000] %f %l : %s
    Even I have done above step,but it also not success.
    How to solve this problem?I am using MPLAB-ICD not MPLAB-ICD2,so please don't advise me to use MPLAB v6.xx.
    Any help will very appreciate!

I was going to buy the HI-TECH PICC compiler yesterday, thinking of
the $100-$400 range. Then I saw the price. :o Is it going to save me
that much work with real time machine control programs?

Look at www.microchipc.com for a good description of configuration.

I don't have much of an issue with the first cost, it is the
maintenance fee that keeps me from buying their product. I don't
expect free upgrades but I absolutely expect free fixes to a product
found to be defective after I purchased it. But that's just me...

I have used the free version, PIC C Lite, and it works quite well.
I particularly like being able to put function pointers in state
tables. CC5X won't allow this.

As I would integrate PIC C into MPLAB, I don't see the advantage of
the Windows versions with yet another IDE. I only use 14 bit parts
(no real reason, just works out that way) so I would only need one
version and that would cost just $125. Not a staggering amount.
But the maintenance fee is out of the question...

I ran into a version of Pascal for the PIC at
http://www.picant.com/p2c/p.html. I imagine everyone else has
already tried it but, somehow, I missed it. I like Pascal a lot
more than I like C or JAL so maybe I'll give it a try for the next
project. It kind of depends on the code generation. Small is good.

I have used Embedded Pascal for an 8051 project and it is a great
product if anyone ever needs something for that family of devices. --- In , Chad Russel <chadrussel@y...> wrote:

It's not just you. I bought the CCS C Compiler. It is a great
compiler that I can no longer live without, but I am appalled that
you can't get bug fixes for more than 30 days. If I would have had a
better choice, I would have went with it instead of CCS. I'm sure
they know that their (real) competitors also have crappy support.

If only there was a viable open-source alternative for PIC like AVR-GCC for AVR

There is SDCC, an open-source C that is 'almost' ready according to
Al Williams at http://tutor.al-williams.com/picc1.htm.

I haven't tried it and I am not anxious to do so. It seems I spend
a lot more time trying to figure out why compiled code doesn't work
than I save by using the compiler in the first place.

Most of my projects are well under 1000 lines of assembly code -
it's a microcontroller, not a mainframe!

But I admit that I am sometimes too lazy to work out the nitty-
gritty details and that data structures are more clearly represented
in C, so I use it from time to time.

Have you added #include <pic.h> ? If your code has something in it
thats defined in pic.h like; __IDLOC(),__CONFIG(), or di() and you
try to compile it without pic.h it will give you that error(MPLAB is
unable to find output file...)




For hobbyists, I don't see a problem with JAL.

Yeah - I might have a closer look at JAL
