Who are you calling a Dinkum?
Microchip Technology today introduced the Microchip MPLAB XC32++, a free C/C++ compiler for the 32-bit Microchip PIC32 microcontroller family. The MPLAB XC32++ has no code-size or time limits.
Dinkumware is a software company that provides the Standard C and Standard C++ libraries for microcontroller compilers. They usually set the standards.
Microchip MPLAB XC32 C/C++ Compiler Features
The compiler supports three operating modes: Free, Standard and PRO. Free mode uses standard optimizations and is available for unlicensed customers and supports all PIC32 devices and available memory. The Standard and PRO operating modes are licensed modes and support more sophisticated levels of optimization.
For C, this compiler requires MPLAB IDE v8.xx or higher, and the MPLAB X IDE. For C++, MPLAB X IDE v1.40 or higher is required.
"With the Free MPLAB XC32++, Microchip is offering a completely free C/C++ compiler solution with unlimited code generation," quipped Derek Carlson, Microchip's VP of Development Tools. "Our optimizing C++ compiler includes the industry-recognized Dinkumware libraries. This combination is ideal for a broad range of applications, from the industrial to the academic environments."
