'The MPLABC upgrade -> reportback'
|Hiya fellow MPLABC users!
I have at long last succeeded in 'upgrading' MPLABC with the patch
offered by Microchip. The only difference I could see, was that ver
1.21 (the 'new' version) gives mysterious syntax errors that have to
be disabled with the /s- switch. There is *absolutely* no difference
in code inefficiency between 1.1 and 1.21
I did a word count on BSF 05.3 and BCF 05.3 in the List file for a
16C74 and discovered a whopping 761 ocurrences in the used 4073 bytes
of ROM space. That means 18% of the code space is taken up by *mostly*
unnecessary RAM page switching.
Geez - will MPLABC users get a 18% discount on PIC parts ? I think not!
HEY MICROCHIP! YOOOHOOOO!!!

Correct. As far as I know, the only difference between the two
is that 1.21 includes a text-file that shows workarounds for all
the known bugs.
