PicForge pro the new BASIC Compiler for PIC MCU's

Post by pino » Thu Jan 10, 2008 2:48 am

A complete environment of development and easy use realized for all those people who intend to quickly perform programs for PIC and without writing some line of code MPASM.
With PicForge it is possible to write a program for PIC in formed MPASM on purpose departing from the simple code more Basic some simple commands custom servants for the peripheral ones of the microcontrolloris.

It is enough to write the rising one using simpler instructions as DIM, IF FOR NEXT Go to PRINT etc. and to plan the peripheral ones is physical (port and special registers) how virtual (RS232,LCD,Keyboard etc.) through of the simple FORM.
it will think then PicForge about to codify your code BASIC to perform all the calculations for then to furnish you of a list ready MPASM to be assembled and envoy to the PIC.

PicForge is studied for making easier and above all faster the planning of the microcontroller Pic furnishing here a series of characteristics to the planner following you list

Hi Pino,

Looks interesting, problem is it won't load the 16F877a samples, and when I try and scroll the window or compile - it crashes with a windows fault.

Is this a licence problem?

Pino, just done some checking, I wonder if you've missed out a file in the installer?

The error is caused by 'MultiByte ToWideChar' in Kernel32. The installer has a warning - 'Scanned Project1' failed during request for component.

I will check your problem.
the version freeware is only for pic16f84 similar!

Hi again,

It doesnt help to have samples that use a PIC part that is not
supported in the trial version. We cant try the samples that way
so it's almost of no use at all, not even to try out.

Pino,

I think you meant to say 'use your imagination'. However, there is obviously interest in your compiler, so it would be better to make clear on your website, that the samples that come with the install are not able to be compiled with the trial/free version.

I suggest including at least 1 16F84 or similar sample, as most people the first thing they do is try out compiling the samples, rather than writing or rewriting the supplied code.

You seem to have put quite a bit of work into it, so it would be shame if it it went to waste because people were disappointed in the samples.

Hi again,

I have to agree with Colin, in that there should be at least one
sample that can be built / compiled with the program or there
is nothing to try out.
Also, the program should not crash when you try to build a
program with a chip that isnt supported.

Why didn't you say that in the first place. Nobody should be using a 16F84 anymore, it's been obsolete for years.
