Hi Luca,

You can get MPLAB off the net from Microchip, there are some "Microchip
bashers" out there, just weigh up short term cost of hobby type
programmer against Microchip's Picstart Plus (most upgrades for both
hardware and software free).

I initially made a programmer some three years ago based on a microchip
application note plus my own qbasic program, how ever if you look at the
large (and expanding) microcontroler product range that Microchip have
then you may consider getting the official package ie programmer,
cd-rom, MPLAB, databooks, support. I eventually decided to bite the
bullet and get this as otherwise I was wasting time updating my
downloader instead of new pic varieties.

>From past traffic, the David Tait programmer would seem the best
supported near free alternative option.
