KTechLab and PIC program simulation: .cod creation?
Initially posted at Sun, 26 Feb 2017 22:30:00 +0000
KTechLab ( Github wiki ; KDE Git repository ) in its current state is able to simulate circuits, but it fails to simulate PICs with uploaded .c or .asm program, because it is not able to properly generate .cod file from the source code.
For simulating a PIC program, KTechLab needs to load a .cod file into gpsim.
Help is welcome in:
- documenting proper sdcc/gplink/gpasm usage for .cod file creation (no C++ coding is required for this ;-) );
- creating a few sample programs/projects for PICs, to be used for quick testing and included as a sample with KTechLab;
At the time of writing there is a junior C++ task, too:
- fixing KTechLab to actually compile the GPSim support, when it finds
GPSim. Currently this is broken, because the
NO_GPSIMmacro ends up defined always. This macro should be converted to the
GPSim_FOUNDmacro (and the negative logic removed).
If you feel like contributing to KTechLab, please contact the project on the mailing list or on IRC.
Have fun with KTechLab!
