picant compiler

Recommended Posts

Hello,

we are looking for a PIC C/C++ compiler.  Is this a full compiler?  with debug? with simulator?

 

What doesn't it support? We will be using pointers to functions.

Will it support simulation?  Will it support emulation (i.e. ICE for PIC)?

How does it compare to Hitech's compilter and IDE?

What sort of features are offered?

Will it support all the PIC devices?

Any limitations?

Future enhancements?

 

Thanks.

Jeff

please contact me via the phone 613 993 3786 for I do not have an email account yet.

 

(other products we are looking at: Hitech, IAR, CCS and an ICE from microchip )

(looking for: a C compiler, but would be nice to have a C/C++ compiler for we are doing a complete code

rewrite and would much prefer to write it in C++)

Hello,

we are looking for a PIC C/C++ compiler.  Is this a full compiler?

C2C++ implements a subset of c++ programming language:

http://www.picant.com/c2cpp/c2cpp.html#limitations

 

with debug? with simulator?

Both assembler level debugging and simulation (for 14 PIC core) will be available in the version 5.0 that will be released soon.

 

What doesn't it support?

http://www.picant.com/c2cpp/c2cpp.html

 

We will be using pointers to functions.

 

Due to the nature of PIC function pointers are not supported.

 

Will it support simulation?  Will it support emulation (i.e. ICE for PIC)?

 

Simulation in 5.0, no plans for emulation from compiler ide.

One needs to use external emilator (i.e. MPLAB)

 

How does it compare to Hitech's compilter and IDE?

 

http://www.picant.com/c2c/hightech.html

 

What sort of features are offered?

 

Again http://www.picant.com/c2cpp/c2cpp.html

 

 

Will it support all the PIC devices?

 

12 and 14 core PICs

 

Any limitations?

 

Again http://www.picant.com/c2cpp/c2cpp.html#limitations

 

 

Future enhancements?

 

Debugger, simulator, project wizard, virtual devices.

 

Regards,

Pavel

I have a demo version of version 4.6.  It seems to support (generate code for) the PIC16F628.  Will the latest version (5) support this processor???

Is there a contact number for support?  (I have a couple of more questions before ordering this).

This seems to be the only package that does C++ for the PIC devices out there.  The other companies have indicated that it costs to much to develop such a compiler.

 

tks.

Yes it will. All targets supported in 4.6 will be supported in 5.0

 

Is there a contact number for support?  (I have a couple of more questions before ordering this).

 

No there is no such number. All questions should be emailed to support@picant.com

The C2C++ compiler is the only C++ compiler (to my knowledge) available on the market.

Pavel
