Mikro Pascal is a good compiler, although I have doubts about its optimization level. I have used it with the 16F series and works well. But it's not free. The evaluation copy is only for 2K of code.

And don't forget it's only for Windows, like Pic Micro Pascal. They have years announcing their Linux versions. 

PicPas is open source and multi-platform. I have compiled in Win32/Win64/Ubuntu64, I have not  a Mac to test.  If someone can compile it in Mac, I would be thankfull.

I would ask, why Cannot  FPC compile to Microchip PIC?

Because nobody wrote a PIC backend (the part generating code for PIC) for it yet, I decided to go for Z80 first :)
Is everybody making a Z80 Pascal compiler? This is mine.  Working in the "wirth compiler" branch now.

I'm not doing a Z80 compiler, but if you take a long time, more and more Z80 compilers will be appearing.  :P

I thought one would need an infinite number of monkeys for that :P

PicPas has been updated to the version 0.6.0  :D. All bit operation implemented, more optimization code included, tree syntax improved, parameters of procedures implemented, interfaz modified,  and many other features more.
