'Linux parallel prog. SW?'

Hi all,

I've got an MElabs EPIC Plus parallel port programmer, which I really
like.  What I would like even more, though, is Linux software to drive it,
since I have a spare parallel port on my Linux box (and room to work)
which I don't have on the family Windoze machine.  Plus, of course, I
never have to fight the kids for the Linux keyboard!  I'd prefer a nice X
interface, but command line would be fine too.  I find all kinds of serial
programming software for Linux, and a teasing reference to one with a link
to a non-existant web server (http://www.tatoosh.com), but I'm still stuck with
Windows for programming.

Is anyone currently using Linux software that will work with the EPIC
parallel port programmer?  I don't know if it's the same as any others,
but I suspect it is.

Dale

It is! EPIC is a straight tait classic design and you should be able to find
linux drivers for it as I am sure they are about.

Not a linux man myself so I cannot offer much more than this.

You meant to say that you're not a Linux wannabee, right? :)

I'm trying to re-resurrect the gnupic web page:

http://www.gnupic.org/

There's a section on programmers that has a couple of references to Linux
drivers. The only one I know that is up-to-date is Andre Pines' Picstart+
driver. If anyone has references that they'd like to add here, then send me an
e-mail. (Actually, if there is anything you think is appropriate to the gnupic
web page then let me know.)

Brian Lane moved his server. He's now at http://www.nexuscomputing.com. Here's the
link for the elusive PicPrg2.2

http://www.nexuscomputing.com/picpgmr.shtml

Now be aware that in its current state it will not compile or run on a Linux
2.2 kernel. I've described the patches here on the list. You can find my
latest post describing them here:

http://www.infosite.com/%7Ejkeyzer/piclist/2000/Mar/2126.html

You may want to log into at the index page first though:

http://www.infosite.com/%7Ejkeyzer/piclist/index.html

I currently have a student working on patching picprg 2.2 so that it can
program 16F87X parts and also work properly under kernel 2.2.X. Will have
an updated status report next week after they get back from a conference.

If it is then configuring picprg 2.2 to work with it should be simple.

Scott,

I have one of my students update Brian Lane's picprg 2.2 parallel programmer
to work with 16F87X parts and run under Linux 2.2.X kernels. The parport
driver changes broke picprg 2.2. Since Brian doesn't seem to have a GNU
copyleft on the software I guess I'll need to talk to him about releasing
the updated code. Should have it done sometime next week.

Yeah, that's where I found the tease.  There's a link to http://www.tatoosh.com
for PicProg 2.2, which is dead.  The rest seem to either require hardware
I'm too lazy to build or are specific to a few PICs.  I want to use
everything from 12C508s on up, which is why I bought the EPIC and its
software in the first place.

Maybe I've still got one of my old parallel A/B switch boxes around.  If I
do anything interesting (not bloody likely, I'm allergic to programming),
I'll ship it along to GNUPIC.

Would it work if I modified(change the program command) the david tait
software(I haven't built the prog yet)?

Not sure. I haven't looked at the Tait software in a couple of years.

Great! Meanwhile, I've updated the gnupic programmers section with the up to
date link to Brian's page and for the mean time added the reference to your
patch for the 2.2+ kernel.

I talked to Brian. He said that he had in fact GPLed the source but that he'd
prefer to centrally issue any updates. So once we've finished we'll send the
patches to him for update.
