I started a project with my students to build a full open source PIC IDE in windows. My first try was to port Piklab to windows but it is dependent on Qt and KDE. We decide then to use Eclipse CDT as IDE, SDCC as compiler and GPUtils as linker and assembler. We managed to make the compiler-chain plugin so we can build the whole project in eclipse and generate the binary.
The problem now is how to use eclipse to program the PIC (we are targeting specifically on ICD2 because it is what we have available on our lab). Does anyone knows an open-source programmer that can run on command line on windows?
