download pic18f452.dev

I want to use PIC16F877 / PIC18F452 for my project.I m very new to PIC.I want to know which one of these i should use i mean which one is easy in terms of programming

At my institute we have ALL-11 universal programmer so i can programme both of them But i dont know which software to use for writing and compiling/assembling
programs.Can MPLAB be used for both devices?

In MPLAB we can write code only in assembly what is the tool to write code in C?Actually i want to use C rather than assembly.

some where i read about some thing like CCS PCWH C compilers.Are these free if not then is there any C compiler for the above devices for free?As i m a student so i cannot afford purchasing any one.

You can use MPLAB to write assembly code for both of the pics you want.

There are a few compilers for C out there: CCS, Hi-tech PICC, and few others that I can't name off the top of my head. These are not free and pretty expensive. I can't think of any freeware PIC compilers that are good/stable.

Plz note that the evaluation versions with code limit say 2k are not of much use for me because the project for which i have to use these devices need code size greater than 2k

I am afraid there is no free PIC compiler without code limit?

Take a look on a free release of BoostC C compiler from:

Note that you can use C18 from microchip.
It is in demo version , there is no limitation, and you can install again at the end of the period.

For you developpment in C ( and C18). I advise you to use PICos18. Is is a free RTOS for PIC18.
You will find more information in www.picos18.com
and the forum wwW.picos18.com/forum.

Regards.
Bertrand
