While we're at it... There's still another assembler which is capable of
handling PIC code: AS by A. Arnold. It produces a proprietary object
format which can be converted to hex (all formats) or binary using
provided tools. The UNIX version is distributed in source code (ANSI C)
and compiles flawlessly under Linux (DOS and OS/2 versions are also

Pros: runs under UNIX (big BIG +), assembles PIC and loads of other codes
     -- virtually every MPU that you ever wanted to get to know ;-),
     source code provided

Cons: different from MPASM (of course) as far as pseudo-instructions are
     concerned, definitions for registers and bits need some fiddling
     to be compatible with Microchip's conventions (no problem
     because they reside in .inc files), no .cod file for MPSIM
     (the .hex file can still be loaded and executed, though).

AS can also produce a file with symbol information for debugging; maybe
one could write a converter to .COD format...

The Linux version is available at<version>.tar.gz

The current version is 1.41r6, AFAIK.
