I would still stand by my statement, as there is no free C compiler for
the PIC line - as I think of the pic 'line' as the complete or
substantially representative series of pic processors.

Sure, there are limited 'demo' compilers which have various restrictions
(such as the HiTech, cc5x (which does up to 1k instructions for all
pics, not just two of them)) but I would not call them free, nor would I
say they cover the line of pics.  Their cost is suddenly very high if
you want to use all the code memory in some pics.

But I suppose it's all pedantic.  If all your programs are under 1k
instructions and/or you only need two processors then there are c
compilers which are free enough for you.

The SDCC compiler will only cover midrange pics (at this time) so even
it won't cover the line, though it will be free and do more code than
any other demo midrange compiler.
