I do not know if there is Hitech for 8051, all I know is Keil, SDCC (free), IAR, Rigel and BASCOM (Basic).

i would also recommend the keil C compiler. download the evaluation version of keil from http://www.keil.com and see if you like it too. one thing i would want to tell you is that the evaluation version has a 2K code size limitation. so if you want to program more than that you would have to buy the compiler
 

sorry

I think "chicken_feet" is using TASM compiler in which one need to type the code on notepad and compile it using TASM (running at command prompt). i feel if "a_shawky" could upload the egpyptian compiler, would be helpful to a lot.

yeah.. that's basically what i did for the past few years and one can get really comfortable with it. As for the editor, notepad will do, although there are many editors on the net that highlight each command, heading and operand as you type, which are pretty helpful.

As for the egyptian compiler, i think it will be good to upload it for common good, if the writer allows it. But as for me, syntax error is not really much of an issue to me and i believe for many assembly writers too. Anyway, what is the latest version of keil compiler for 8051? I am using xp.

thks.

dear all
about the egyptian compiler i will upload it soon
for most of the coders syntax errors are not a problem but it is a great problem for begginers some of my work is in the education area and i face that alot
the problem with uploading it that the max upload size is 30M with 5M at a time but it needs more than that because it has several small files and one file that is 7M so please tel me will the board allaw that or will it be refused

thanks alot
