Where to get printed PIC manuals?

  1. All of the PIC books I have say to get the 16F87X datasheet and the PIC
    midrange refference manual. I checked the Microchip site but indombination
    with the MPLAB and MPASM manuals that is over 2,000 pages. I have printed
    out sections as I have needed them but now I huge a pile of gem clipped and
    stapled pages that are almost impossible to find anything in.

    Is there any way to order the manuals printed and bound? I can't find any
    way on their web site and none of the distributors seem to have them.

    And please refrain from telling me to just look it up on the web. That is
    how I made this mess in the first place. Plus you can't take a computer to
    the bathroom. :)

    I plan on having a data jack and laptop in the sh*tter one day. I
    enjoy hte trip, but it takes time. Why not multitask?

    So get off the pot, download them, and print what you need on the
    back of old printouts or whatever. Go to the office supply store and
    get what you need to bind and index them. That's the whole idea of
    not printing databooks these days... cost and environment. Companies
    have moved awy from printed data books. Plant a tree.

    I have absolutely no qualms about the PIC refs I've printed out,
    though at one time I thought I did.
     
  3. As I said, printing out parts is not acceptable solution. What got me
    looking for a printed manual this time was spending hours trying to figure
    out why something didn't work only to find that the simple solution was in a
    section that I had not printed.

    The solution is still the same. Take the PDF to Kinko's and have them print
    and bind it.
