Sorry to confuse you!

If the user program in the slave doesn't set CKP it will not release
the clock. I didn't have the data sheet in front of me at the time, but
the key point I was trying to make is that there is a document about
the 877 I2C hardware in slave mode, and the code sample is useful
but neglects to set CKP.

Olin, please get DS00734A and look at the slave code sample. It is
broken. It does not set CKP, so it only works for the first transfer.
Then the bus is frozen.

Just reading the 877(30292) data sheet it's very difficult to get the
I2C slave working, mostly I was trying to let the reader know there
was an up-to-date document, with Microchip's usual errors in it. I
just added my own error. Perhaps that way I'll become as rich and
popular as Microchip!

Thanks for pointing out my little error.

Cheerful regards,
