Hi,

I'm looking for reviews on gputils on linux. How good is gputils?
Anyone using them?

Regards,

Chetan Bhargava

I use them occasionally.

gpasm does exactly what I'd expect it to, I've not hit any discrepancies
between it and mpasm, so you could find a review of mpasm and read that
instead :-)

gpsim is great, but I expect MPLAB has now caught up with some of its
features.  When I started using it, it was so much faster than MPLAB that I
thought it must be skipping some code, I don't know if MPLAB has caught up,
I haven't compared any projects between them recently :-)

The only gpsim feature that I wish I could use but haven't had time to
understand is the hardware simulation blocks (LCD display etc).  After a
quick look I couldn't easily follow the documentation, so I haven't used
the feature, but it does look useful.

Someone who uses mplab and gputils regularly might be able to give you a
better comparison, but they are well maintained and adequate for everything
I've tried so far!

Nigel

I use gputils (mostly gpasm, see <http://www.janw.easynet.be/pic1-e.html>),
however, I don't know how good it is because I have never used something
else ;-)

Yes, I am using them, they work as advertised. I haven't much to compare
them to but they seem fully functional.

The only problem I had was finding something that will support both my
programmer and the target chip I was using. I had a Tait style
programmer, and the only way I could get it to successfully program was
to slow it so far down it took nearly 2 hours to program the '648a I
will be using for my wisp628.

Excellent. It's a collection of tools that facilitates PIC development on
alternative platforms.

> Anyone using them?

It's all I use for my PIC development. The last time I used MPLab it was
running under DOS.

Hi Chetan,
I use gpasm to assemble my code. It seems to be very good, I haven't
noticed any bugs in the way it works, though I admittedly just getting
started with PICs.

Hi Chetan,

Since I'm one of the developers, I probably have a biased opinion...

But the gputils project is the open source implementation of the assembler
and the linker. Craig Franklin is the primary developer now. He's gone
through great efforts to ensure that gpasm and gplink behave the same as
MPASM and MPLINK. Thanks to his efforts, people can now perform PIC
development on every modern OS. Craig has done (and continues to do) an
outstanding job!

gpsim, the simulator, is not distributed with gputils. It's a separate
project that I maintain. I started it many years ago because I was
frustrated with how slow MPSIM ran. The last time I ran MPLab (about a
year ago), I saw that MPSIM is faster but is still slow when compared to
gpsim (gpsim running on a modern PCruns about 10 times faster than a
real PIC clocked at 20MHz [I guess that makes gpsim as fast as an SX
processor]).

gpsim is now much more than just a PIC simulator. Its really a system
simulator. For example, as Nigel mentions, gpsim can support devices like
LCDs. Over the last few months I've been actively developing the simulator
to add a set of proprietary modules that I need for my day job. Along the
way, I've made numerous enhancements. Most of these are transparent to the
user (e.g. stronger type checking, better parser, cleaner class design).
Some of the changes will expand the simulator's capability. For example,
the command line interface now has an expression parser. Or the new socket
interface allows an external application (like say a Python script running
on a different machine) control the simulator. Probably the biggest change
for most users is that gpsim has been ported to Windows.

Hi All,

Thanks for all the pointers. I have built a machine with Gentoo linux
for cross platform development. I have ARM toolchain, AVR GCC and have
installed gputils couple of days back. I guess that I would have to
experiment with it to get the feel of it.

Regards,

Chetan

go to gputils.sourceforge.net and click on the bugs button. They have like
10 registered bugs in 3 years or so.
