Is there any way I could emulate input into chip using the free emulator, when debugging my code to see if it responds correctly into input?

  • \$\begingroup\$ @CamilStaps yes and analog signal input too. \$\endgroup\$ – The amateur programmer Nov 11 '14 at 5:31

Yes, there definitely is. A fairly elaborate system has been in MPLAB for a long time, including in version 8. However, the full details weren't documented until recently. Only a stripped down set of capbilities via a clickety-click GUI were available.

    \$\begingroup\$ @Theam: Yes I could. But, this is getting tiring. I answer your questions, then you keep coming back with more unrelated questions. \$\endgroup\$ – Olin Lathrop Nov 10 '14 at 19:35
