I was wondering how many PIC users are on LMR and what languages are being used. I am currently a fan of the dsPIC33's and use C and assembly for programming.
The (tragic?) result of my work is that I wound up with a macbook pro.
I'm not going to labour my opinions of a mac here, but when trying to find out which uC I could use, solarbotics suggested a picaxe, because it can be easily interfaced with a mac.
Having not tried anything else at this stage, I have no idea of the extent to which this is accurate, but it certainly seems to be consistent with what I see.
I would dearly like to have the time and money to use pics - getting the interface hardware for my mac, and learning the code etc. etc., but at present, I think the picaxe is very appropriate for what I want to do.
Welllll, I wanted to avoid having to use emulation software - there's something klugey about it... having a lot of sofware on my computer so it behaves like a different computer just seems ... I don't know, like i'm defeating the purpose.
But!, I must step back and see the bigger picture. Maybe tomorrow though.
