Lost Souls--Pic Challenges
Bob LeDoux email (remove spam text)
Show me mind twisters that utilize assembler with minimal 8 bit PIC's.
Or as David Brown said: "One of the great pleasures of my retirement is solving difficult calculations in assembler for PIC16s."
My Conway's Game of Life was typical: Take a well defined algorithm, and create it in PIC assembler using minimal hardware.
Here is another example: I have a decimal value between 0 and 1. I need to generate two integers a and b, such that a/b closely approximates the decimal value. One algorithm is Jon Farey's best rational approximation. Here is a presentation:
These are the kinds of exercises for me. But where do I find them?

One of the great pleasures of my retirement is solving difficult
calculations in assembler or PIC16s. With all the pressures of deadlines
gone I can spend an entire day crafting an exquisite 10 lines of
assembler. Far more interesting and demanding as doing a suduko and, in
the greater scheme of things, equally futile.
