programming uC32 in pure C

Question

Hello,

I'd like to know if it's possible to program chipKIT uC32 in pure C using MPLAB X IDE? Is there a licensed debugger I must to choose when creating MPLAB project?
Thanks.

Hello,

Unfortunately uc32 has  no onboard debugging / programming solution. As mentioned in the uc32 reference manual, in order to use the board as a development board using Microchip Development Tools, you need to connect a programmer on the JP3 connector (such as  Digilent PGM or Microchip Pickit 3).

Please tell me if you need more information.

It also depends on what you need to be able to do. If you're needing to debug your code, the only option are those mentioned. The Snap debugger is a very inexpensive option ($15, and discounts are pretty regular).

If you don't need to debug, you would have to use a linker script to make the program look like something the MPIDE or Arduino IDE produces, but then you have to be able to download it through the bootloader.

On the other hand, Arduino programming also allows you to provide C / C++ code.

This is not the best way to write your C code, still you should know that you can do it.
