Hello From Southern California

Postby CaliforniaSlacker » Thu Feb 22, 2018 7:13 am

Learning PIC assembler with a 20 year old book and it's lots of fun.

Doing it in spare time which I have next to none so it's going at snails pace.

Looks like a good forum here. I was referred by somebody to it. Guy really knew his PIC's.

<edit> First, please confirm that you are not this idiot from the official MCHP forum ;-)

#######################################################################

20 year old book for learning programming a micro controller?
-> Forget it ;-)

To get something up to date, have a look here for example:
http://www.gooligum.com.au/PIC-tutorials

Lot of the tutorials are free.
If you like them, you can get a more at a cheap rate...

Yep.That's me!

Proud of it too.

I will learn PIC's the way I want to. Period.

It took a year of asking questions just to figure out right place to start with these PIC's.

I've found it. This book is great.

If Ric says don't post here, he's got it.

Tried the Googlium. It's more for people that are active in electronics currently.

It is a fine piece of work,

Also the 16F54 in this book I work with better than the 10F200 in Googlium.

Oh no ;)

Most of others may think it is completely off the track and hard to give help on your way.

It may have taken much shorter time if you did not ignore the answers.

I would skip the baseline PICs and start with the mid-range.

'It may have taken much shorter time if you did not ignore the answers.'

It is not so much that I ignored the answers.

A lot of it I just did not get at the time.

For example it finally came into focus the other day about this:

Program memory has PAGING. Data memory has BANKING.

There is a lot to learn about PIC's.

The question and answer helped a whole bunch though.
