I've searched the net high and low for PIC C compilers.  Can anyone comment
on these compilers?  Are there others that aren't listed below?  Thanks.

1.) Custom Computer Services (CCS) - $99
       Supports most PIC's with built-in special functions
       http://execpc.com/~ccs/picc.html

2.) Parallax ByteCraft C Compiler - $795
       Supports 16C5x, 16C6x, 16C7x, 16C8x, and 17C42.
       http://www.parallaxinc.com/pictools/c_compilers/

That's all I could find.  Is the ByteCraft compiler worth the extra $700???

John:

I think so.  The Bytecraft compiler (by the way, it isn't a Parallax
product any more than the PIC microcontrollers are) is called MPC;
aside from being a better compiler, it's much more compatible with
Microchip's emulator (which can debug MPC programs at the source
level), and there are some new developments coming soon for MPC which
should make it even better.

I have the $99 one and I like it alot.  I haven't had any problems but I only
use it in a hobby fashion.....  I haven't stressed it much.

There is another C-Complier coming from Avocet Systems. I've been told it will
ship in November. Demo disks are supposedly available.

Contact Avocet at 800 448-8500 or avocetspamspam_OUTmidcoast.com

The PIC architecture doesn't lend itself to stack-based languages like C,
IMHO.  Those are the two compilers that I know of.  I bought them both,
guess in what order :).

I've heard of happy CCS customers, and I suppose for some PIC variants for
some projects their product is fine.  And then it's a good value.  I couldn't
use it for my project, as it was c57 based, and needed more than one page
of code.

The MPC compiler (I bought mine straight from ByteCraft) allowed me to complete
the project and deliver to the customer.  That was worth US$700 to me.
