    pic18 mcc

    Personally, I like the "PIC-C Compiler with Windows IDE (PCWH)" from

    http://www.thebytefactory.com/c_home.asp

    It is self-contained and supports (I think) all 18 and most other 12 and 16 PIC's.

    They did have a few bug problems compiling code for the 18's, but these seem to have been sorted out in the latest versions.

    Cheers,
    FoxyRick

    ccs compiler is very buggy

    Hi Kiki,

    I see that you don´t include in your options the CCS C compiler

    http://www.ccsinfo.com/picc.shtml

    they have a free version that you can use prior to buy.

    Cheers,

    Re: Pic18 compiler choice

    i would definately go with CCS. it is inexpensive and an excellent compiler for the pic family. MPLAB C17 is also a nice compiler but expensive.

    CCS compiler is easy to use, but very buggy!

    :D

    Re: Pic18 compiler choice

    Well, if you need to use an RTOS for your application, I would sugest you Hitec PICC18. If not, or if you are short on time, go with no doubt for CCS.

    Re: Pic18 compiler choice

    If you want or need a full Ansi copatible compiler (which is very important for code reuseability) go with Hi-Tech.

    Pic18 compiler choice

    On larger projects i ran to many bugs with HI-TECH,
    and turned back to MCC-18, it's buggy too, but while
    I spent long nights debugging HT's code in MCC it's
    easier to workaround the bugs.
    And it wasn't a big deal to turn the sources to MCC.

    good luck,
    Zed
