WANTED: people to help beta test new CASE tool for PIC

I'm about to release a state machine CASE tool that will produce code
which will run directly on the PIC. You draw the state diagrams, fill in
the names for the state transition functions, the state monitor
functions and the events. Write these functions in C or assembler and
the tool builds the state machine for you. Anyone used to writing
programs for the PIC will soon come to appreciate the ease with which
systems can be coded as sets of small discrete states. It is even
possible to have several state machines running in the same PIC
concurrently thus further simplifying system design.

There will be a hobbyist / student version which will only accept
assembler source, a standard version for normal commercial use which
will also accept C source and an enterprise version which will only be
of interest to people building multiprocessor machines with CPUs that
have large amounts of RAM. Both the hobbyist and standard versions come
with a built in CPU specific assembler. While the enterprise version
will come with XCASM a very powerful meta assembler (useful if you're
building your own CPU).

Several existing evaluation versions of this tool (each built for a
different development platform) which do not support the PIC but are
intended for large systems can be found at
http://www.xcprod.com/titan/ZMECH Using any one of them you will see how
it is possible to interactively debug a state machine by running the
generated code against the diagram and watching the events and state
transitions unfold on screen on the user drawn diagram.

The hobbyist / student version will sell for around $25 (distribution +
administrative costs) while the standard version will sell for around
$250. The enterprise version will be, as they say, reassuringly
expensive.

                                 ***
Anyone wishing to take part in the beta tests for the hobbyist / student
version of this PIC CASE tool should send me a private email.

OK John - I'll send it again (maybe third time will be lucky for you).
