'I Know for Sure I Can't Download PIC Data Sheets.'

       I use lynx, a good text-based web browser which usually works
well on most sites including the Microchip web site.  A year or so
ago, I indicated having difficulty finding the PIC data sheets.
I wasn't sure if I was just not looking in the right place or what.
Andrew Warren who is always quite helpful offered to give me the urls
of any data sheets I needed, but I still wasn't sure what was going
on.  The data sheets are pdf files and I can download pdf's to my
heart's content with lynx even though they can't be immediately read.
One just selects the link and then tells lynx to download and it
works.  I can download any binary file this way, pdf, jpg, wav, etc.

       I finally decided to get to the bottom of this mess and figure
out what was or wasn't happening and I think I now know.

       I get to the web site with no problem and end up selecting

http://www.microchip.com/index2.htm

Which puts me on a page that looks like:

                                           Microchip Technology Inc. (p1 of 4)

       Whoopee! data sheets!  I select that link and get:


       By selecting "Data Sheets," and moving down the usual
introductory screens that are mostly links back to the other parts of
the site, I come to:

I select 16f8x since I am looking for the sheet for the 16f84.

       The closest I seem to get to the holy grail is the page you
see below.  The funny thing is that if I want application notes or
some of the marketing stuff which seems to intrude in to everything
else, the pdf's are right there.  I think the problem is something to
do with this particular path.  I would like to figure out how to
bypass the problem as I do not absolutely have to have this data sheet
today, but would like to figure out a solution which works for the
general case of wanting to know what a particular PIC does and just
being able to find out by looking it up.  Here is the page capture:

       Any ideas as to what is happening? Normally, in lynx,
selecting an option is pretty much like it is in other browsers.  I
can't show you the highlighted links, but they were there to start
with.:-)

       I also tried to use the text search option but it said that it
was temporarily out of service for a couple of days.  They must be
Loon AR days because that was last week some time when I first saw that
and this is Tuesday.  I would have probably tried 16f84.pdf to see if
anything came up.

Microchip got data books that are available for free (At least here by me).
Phone them or any big supplier and see if they will snail mail it to you.
(1997 was around 6 books)

Or, if you want just one Data sheet, I can get it and email it to you.
Let me know off list.

What's wrong with the CD-ROM is its availability limited, or is it out of
date???
It's so easy to get that I have two!

On the next page just scroll down a bit and you can dl the pdf's

It works (i just tried it).
