- supported chips
The CC7A C compiler supports all PIC17 instructions and generates optimized code. The code efficiency that have put CC5X in a leading position for over 15 years also applies to CC7A.
The compiler supports 8, 16, 24 and 32 bit variables, signed and unsigned, including single bit variables, compiler generated layout of local variables, automatic ram bank updating. Many files can be generated (hex, assembly, list, error, function outline, variable list). The compiler supports structures and unions, bitfields, typedef, typecast, arrays and pointers.
Fixed and floating point math is available. The floating point math (16, 24 and 32 bit). The library code is compact and fast. Code can be optimized for size or speed.
The code generated by CC7A can be inspected at the example page.
The EXTENDED edition also supports LEANSLICE multitasking.

An alternative is to use the right mouse button (browser dependent), and select Save Link As or Save Target As to save the file and view it offline.
The downloadable packages contains example code and txt files. The compiler is a 32 bit console application that can be started from the command line and from many IDE applications.
The system requirements, user interface and installation are similar to the CC5X compiler.
