GPICD 0.3.1

GPICD is an open-source version of a programmer and in-circuit debugger (ICD) for the Microchip PIC microcontroller family.
GPICD is an open-source version of a programmer and in-circuit debugger (ICD) for the Microchip PIC microcontroller family. It works with the PCSPP parport kernel feature, through the standard ppdev device driver.

The tool works fine on an Intel machine. It may also work on other architectures that support Linux if a PCSPP-style parport interface is available.

The software is developed in C. The Graphical User Interface uses GTK+ 2.0.

Here are some key features of "GPICD":

· The Hardware Interface: a simple programming+ICD interface you connect to the parallel port of your computer. GPICD hardware interfacing is fully configurable, so that any other parallel-port based hardware interface may be used.
· The Command Line Interpreter, which allows to read and write the program and EEPROM memories of the target PIC directly from a shell command. An interactive usage is also possible.
· The Graphical User Interface is a cool debugging graphical environment with source viewer,memory watch, breakpoints, etc.

What's New in This Release:

· Fix erroneous addressing when reading register PCLATH and writing registers STATUS, PCLATH, FSR.
· Fix address computation in COD file loader.
· The problem occurs when using gputils >= 0.11.2
· Make the hardware interface fully configurable, so that it is possible to use virtually any parallel-port based ICSP interface.
· Two predefined configuration are proposed: native GPICD and Microchip Robert Spur's AN589. An editable Custom type is also available.
· The hardware configuration can be edited from both CLI and GUI.
