Chapter 4. FlowCode


FlowCode allows for very quick and easy construction of a PIC program. After the user has constructed a flowchart from the program parts available, KTechlab can then convert the flowchart into a number of formats. To output hex, for example, the following chain of conversions takes place:

  1. The FlowCode is converted to Microbe; a high-level language whose compiler is distributed with KTechlab.

  2. The microbe executable then compiles the Microbe file to PIC assembly.

  3. Finally, gpasm takes the PIC assembly file, and outputs the hex for the program.

Of course, if you don't have gputils installed - with which gpasm is distributed - then the last step can't be performed.
