PIC C Library on Sourceforge

May 8, 2007

My PIC C library is now on Sourceforge. I’ve developed and used this library for my own projects in conjunction with the Hi-Tech PICC Lite compiler on and off for a few years now. It’s been sitting on my laptop for personal use, and I thought it was time to make it available for others to use.

Making picclib available is my first experience of Sourceforge, and a fairly pleasant one. The documentation is quite reasonable, although it helps to have some background with Unix, ssh, CVS/Subversion etc. I chose Subversion as I’ve been using it for my own projects for awhile now.

There’s plenty of Sourceforge features yet to explore. I’ll certainly use it for future projects.

I took this happy snap of the Moon on April 7 2007 from Stockport Observatory, South Australia. The image is unprocessed.
