those sample are good but unfortunately that is the only source can be found on the web. i suggest for beginner try to look for other basic ide that could be better. since mikrobasic is still new to many
I am a beginner in PIC and several weeks ago, I found the MikroBasic compiler. The IDE is good and I was able to make my first simple program, like running light.
Unfortunately, it seems that the Mikrobasic compiler lacked the necessary documentations which a beginner like me needs, like simultaneously setting the bits , bit-banging tasks , reading the inputs and the likes. They are not well-documented for use by beginners, giving us the early frustration.
I just bought a book by Jack Smith ( it uses Mbasic compiler) and I am still about to pick it up.
Anyone who could give me a full version compiler of MBasic so that I could start experimenting ???

good day !
i found a link that uses mikrobasic ! it's some sort of tutorial book but not yet commercially available. I hope it could help you...
mikroBasic is a structured language compiler, similar to Visual Basic, but catering to PIC specific language characteristics. It is very good and easy to learn. Look in the compiler under HELP and you will see the Language Reference. There you will get a good overview of the characteristics of the language. It is not intended to teach you how to program in Basic, or necessarily, how to program a PIC. That you can learn by examples and the compiler provides many in the compiler's Examples folder.
If you are wondering if it is good enough as a compiler, we used mikroBasic as the compiler behind our USB Semiconductor Curve Tracer. The PIC there manages the USB communication, and all ADC and DAC work on the board:
No, the mE ICD is their own design and faster than ICD2. It only works with their compilers and their programmers, whether on-board or stand-alone. Microchip recently purchased the BigPIC4 board I'm sure to figure out how they did it.
