I need a free, that means no limitations at all, integrated development environment with a good C compiler that works with midrange PICmicro microcontrollers like a PIC16F877A.I tried SourceBoost, but the compiler without a $60 licsence won't let me compile programs with too much ram or rom usage, I can't even compile a ADC + PWM + LCD demo program.C18 is only for PIC18 microcontrollers... I might do extensive header file modifying if it is my last resortEverything else I found limits to "2 RAM banks, 2K program memory supported", I need moreIt can't have any limits... sorry but it's going to be something big, I need more RAM and probably all 14.3K of program memoryDoes anybody have any suggestions? Hopefully open source?And even if C18 works, after trying SourceBoost, MPLAB has a crappy GUI compared to SourceBoostAnd I only need unsigned chars, I don't need any variables larger than 8 bits either, and I don't need a library since I already wrote a lot of my own stuffThanksOr... Should I order a few sample PIC18F4525? They are pin-pin compatible with the PIC16F877A, and is a PIC18 so C18 would work with itI need my first ever robot done by the end of the summer...

I tried MPLAB around 2002, and was definitely disappointed.
Oh, my issue was that it didn't follow standard C. I remember it not doing math functions properly, for example, making it really hard to debug code. Perhaps those issues have been fixed since.
