    Hello,

    I would like to buy a PIC programmer, but the Velleman's kit though
    seeming intteresting can only be used with Windows.
    I am a Linux user, so I would like to be able using a PIC programmer,
    but Linux based..
    Can somebody help me finding one?

    many thanks
     
  2. There are a lot of choices. Any of the more upmarket 'serial' programmers
    will work (these only require a .hex file to be sent via a serial port).
    There are a number of plan sets on the web, and a number of pre-built
    units which in some versions support Linux. Try:
    http://www.lancos.com/prog.html
    http://pp06.sourceforge.net/index.html
    http://www.boutell.com/lsm/lsmbyid.cgi/000322
    The most 'basic', is PICPRG, which is a program, which in conjunction with
    some very simple hardware, can program the most basic PIC models.
    The Velleman kit, can be used with Linux, but with limited device support.
