Programming the PIC16F877

Started by knesha_williams March 5, 2005


I am trying to program the pic16f877 using C, however i need to find
a free version of the ccs c compiler(full version) to dowload from
the internet. Do you have any suggestion?



I think you can also use PICC.

You're asking someone to help you steal a copy?

CCS is not free. Pay for it, you get a copy. Don't pay for it, you
don't get a copy.

Two free versions of a C compiler for PICs, that I know of:

HI-TECH PICC Lite
CC5X

I need a free credit card. Send me one and I'll send you a free copy ;)

anything for Linux ?

Hi Dave-

I looked at SDCC last year for the PICs but didn't like it.

I may have been doing something funny, but it was generating
wierd errors that, although I could fix from the assembly language
output, would require a lot of hand tweaking.

Therefore, I went to another C compiler and will try the SDCC
compiler again later.

I didn't see the problems with the Z80 setup however, so SDCC
most likely will be used around here for the Z80.

That's the only linux C cross compiler for the PIC that I'm
aware of.

Cheers,

I am pretty new at pics. I started playing with them
about a year ago. I was very surprised at the cost of
the compilers and more surprised at the lack of gnu
port.

It seems like a relatively easy instruction set, but
then again I am not a compiler developer.

GNU works for AVR, but has anyone gotten it ported for PICs?

Check out http://www.gnupic.org for various linux based tools.

Hi Dave,

If you are a student, you can obtain a free student command-line
compiler of CCS then you can easily integrate to MPLab.Please contact
CCS at . Below is the copy of the document they sent
to me after contact CCS.

>>>>>>>>

Dear Student: We would be willing to give you a command-line compiler
free of charge if you might be willing to do one of the following: `
Send a copy of the code you compiled for us to use as an example
program. ` Mention us in a Senior Thesis or written project for
computer engineering. ` Review our manual for constructive
criticism. ` Do a compiler comparison to other C compilers (if you
have another one). We request that the option chosen be completed and
sent to us within one (1) year of receiving the compiler. If you
choose to complete one of the above, please provide us with the
following information via email, fax or post: Your Name University
Name Mailing Address Telephone Number Email Address Copy of your
Student ID (we give special options to students only!) Also, please
choose whether you would like the PCB (12 bit), PCM (14 bit) or PCH
(16 bit PIC18 only). Please feel free to contact us with questions
or concerns. Sincerely, CCS, Inc. HTTP:\\WWW.CCSINFO.COM --- In , "Dave Mucha" <dave_mucha@y...> wrote:
