I've been working (and attempting to work) with Salvo for PIC16 and 18 for a couple weeks now, and find that I need some guidance on wether it will be the right solution for me going forward.
My two intended target processors are a PIC18F87J11 and PIC16F1938 (two different projects), both of which will require a regular system timer (10mS or so resolution) and possibly an external interrupt.
My current development environment consists of MPLAB 8.56, MCC18 3.36, PICC 9.80 and PICC18 9.63. None of the C compilers have been purchased, currently running in "lite" mode, as well as using Salvo 3.2.3 "lite" with patches A through E applied to familiarize myself with it.
I have been running into significant issues attempting to get a timer overflow interrupt system to function, and to date have only been able to get even the simplest non-interrupt enabled Salvo-enable project to compile and run under MCC18 - PICC(18) simply locks up, having to kill the task from task manager.
I have no issues with purchasing Salvo and/or one or both of the compilers (based on recommendation), but I really would like to know with some certainty that it will work in the development environment with the target(s) I have in mind, and if necessary, how to work out the timer interrupt issues I'm having.
Thanks in advance!
