Are there any PIC programmers out there that could program a pic for me, I need some help
Do you just need help or somebody to do it?
Well I don't have a PIC programmer, so..... and as for the language, I understand it a bit but not enough to do it all, so would need someone to go over it.....
do you do it Shaun? PS our stuff has arrived, just need to go pick it up.
Go fetch it now.
No I don't but know somebody that does. Always wanted to learn, just no time.
Stuck in the office, you not going down that side (Gale St)?
Tell him to give us a 101 crash coarse?
Was down in durbs this morning, now I must got fix a flat tire.
A crash coarse would be for you to do it and see if if crashes or not.
What are you two up to?
Can't say, its a matter of National Security If tell you, you know what happens then.....
You two buggers are scheming something.
lIghty, I have 2 small pic programmers, one runs off ms-dos and the other off win98 (might work in XP) I think they both run off parallel ports, 1 might be serial but I can't remember. If you're desperate then I can get the wife to hunt around for them and post them off to you.
Thanks Dean but don't stress, I could always build or purchase the programmer locally, they not badly price, postage from the UK would probably cost more.
What lanuage did you use?
They both came with programming software and I just used hex files which I got off the net.
The only problem is if you get the real cheap programmers they are limited to the PIC's you can use.
thats ok, learning just to program one is enough! going to use something along the line of 16F628
So you not going to use a PLC anymore.
well, I'll move my system over to the new GSM commander when I move, so don't think I'll need the use of it? perhaps put on my moms tank to help her....
I'm wanting to actually build some light sequencer (Sp?) with the PIC, could do it without using the PIC, but always wanted to learn how to program on PICs, but it doesn't seem that easy..
Anyone have exprience with PIC Assembly code? please, I need a BASIC run down
20 wait 43200
40 wait 43200
50 goto 10
Hi Rory, Thank, Can remember that from the QBasic days, when I said "basic" I actually meant basic - for the dump like me, but actually in Assembly code....
Looks something along the line of the following.... make any sence to you?
; Simple Progrm Example
#define LED PORTB,0
i ; byte veriable
dly: clrf i
dly1: decf i,F
seems like i've found another lanuage I can use, much easier than Assembly code
Cool lIghty - please share?
Called "C", C is used on PIC programming and C++ for PC, from what I can understand
Separate names with a comma.
