Recently, I have tested the size of code generated by  several PIC compilers, in comparison with PicPas. The same sample program (a simple light control: https://github.com/t-edson/PicPas/tree/0.7.5/Comparacion%20PicPas-MikroC-CCS) was compiled in these programs:

The result was:

MikroC
======
RAM: 18 bytes   FLASH: 126 words

CCS
=====
RAM: 7 bytes   FLASH: 135 words

JAL
========
RAM: 9 bytes  FLASH: 117 words

Pic Micro Pacal
===============
RAM: 4 bytes FLASH: 104 words   

PicPas
======
RAM: 2 bytes   FLASH: 64 words

And the winner is: PicPas :D

Hello,
I noticed there are no Linux precompiled binaries in few last releases. I'd compile them on my own, but unfortunately I'm not clear about how to compile it.
Could you, please, clarify how to compile it?

Oh Yes. Most of the users of PicPas just use Windows, so I don't update to much the Linux version.
But building the project is easy. PicPas use just a few libraries:

* SynFacilUtils
* MisUtils
* MiConfig
* PicUtils
* Xpres
* UtilsGrilla

All of them, are availables on my GitHub site. Check the versions used.

These libraries don't include package. They are only files in folders that need to be included when compiling PicPas.

Tell me if you have some problem when compiling.

So I need Lazarus with those libraries, OK I got it now. I looked for a makefile or build script, that is why I was confused.
I'll try it and share results/comments.

OK I have compiled a version for Ubuntu. It's in the 0.7.8 trunk version: https://github.com/t-edson/PicPas/tree/0.7.8

It's using an old style skin.  PicPas support themes  8-)

PicPas 0.7.8 has been released: https://github.com/t-edson/PicPas

Implemented the TYPE section:

Code: Pascal  [Select]
  1. TYPE
  2.   my_type = byte;
  3.   TArrBytes = array[5] of byte;
  4.  

Only arrays of bytes supported by now.  :-X

Hi Edison, PicPas Cool project.
Change please settings in Main Form (TfrmPrincipal and TConfig dialog):
 
object inspector\Position = poScreenCenter (or TConfig Position = poMainFormCenter)

Thaks
Best regards

OK. It will be changed in the 0.8.0 version, that is going to be released soon.

PicPas (https://github.com/t-edson/PicPas) the Open Source Pascal compiler for the Middle range Microchip Microcontrollers, is progressing fast. Now in the version 0.8.0. includes a software debugger and simulator. The simulation can be done in real time, for the maximum clock frequency of the device, in a simple PC.

I see. The Interfaz is not prepared, in some parts to adapt to the font size. It's sttange. I expected the StringGrid used, would adapt well to the font size. Maybe you have set a big font on your system.

Did you see the same problem in the settings form? Can you send a picture?

I see most of the forms are OK, considering the big size of the font. Maybe the simulator window, must be reviewed and resized. I will check.
