    Default 18(L)F25/26K83 support

    Hi Les,
    Is it likely the compiler will support the new 18(L)F25/26K83 devices http://www.microchip.com/wwwproducts/en/PIC18F26K83

    Regards,
    Bob

    They will be supported, however, Microchip are bringing devices out now that break most of the rules for the existing 18F devices, and do not actually state that they are quite different. Even their C compilers don't support the newer devices fully.

    I'm currently creating new libraries for the K40 and K42 devices, which also break the rules, but I'm also trying to make a living, so time on the compiler is shorter than it once was, so it is taking a bit longer than it uses to do.

    I still don't understand the multitude of devices available, when they are all basterdisations of each other, and frankenstein monsters, in that they are bits of this and bits of that, that are already available. A typical sales gimmick that serves very little practical purpose! But that is modern life now, unfortunately, and all the semiconductor manufacturers are doing the same in the name of "money", "money", "money" and nothing else. Forget innovation or creativity, as long as it confuses people enough for them to buy "MORE".

    If this attitude had been around in the past, we'd still be using steam for transport, and valves for electronics, but there would be plenty of different types, but nothing actually new!!!!

    The above should have read "Have to make a living, not based on programming or electronics design anymore"

    I'm now back to being a TV engineer, when health permits, which is something I haven't done for over 20 years. But modern TVs are so crap and so badly built and designed, they are always going off. ;-) They even take an awful lot of time to dismantle for some of the repairs because the manufacturers now glue them together and use high tack tape etc instead of screws, so that they are not easily repaired. Oh what a surprise!!!! Manufacturers don't want things repaired anymore. :-)

    Per se or as opposed to transistors?

    Well, they (valves) bite Charlie. And they bit me a lot when I was young. I'm a slow learner, especially when some had a grid connection on the top for touching to see if they were working and some had the plate on the top not for touching.
    The only two valves in my ham shack have 2000volts on the plate and I'm steering clear
