Parallax Clearview Assembly Compiler


Looks like we will finally get this program to run.

Windows 8.1 won't run it. Says something about 32 bit.

Will install Windows 2000 on isolated by a switch second hard drive. So in affect on it's own system.

'New' motherboard we are putting in den computer is pretty neat.

10 year old Asus AMD motherboard but it is probably one of the last with serial and parallel port.

So this should be a good setup for using old software and hardware.

    Here's the link for Clearview compiler. It's under older products tab.

    http://www.tech-tools.com/index.html

    Parallax sold it to Tech Tools some time ago.

    It is a PIC compiler. If it only supports older 'C' type PIC's it will be a little hard to do much with it.

    Edit Looks like 'Clearview' might have been the name of Parallax Semiconductor's PIC product's.

    There is an old PIC Emulator on Ebay right now that says 'Clearview'.

    Wonder what other products they made for PIC?

    I've seen a programmer. It did not seem to say 'Clearview' on it though. Just PGM.

    Nice little product name 'Clearview'.

    If you want to get your feet wet with some Assembler, why not look at one of the 'better assemblers' that is supported in 2017, and is open source....?
    Read up on fasmg... very powerful and more a scripting engine, than your grand-daddy's assembler...

    and here it is, doing PIC opcodes...
    https://board.flatassembler.net/topic.php?t=18607

    It can also be made to do P1 opcodes.. or P2 opcodes...

    Flat assembler looks good. I have looked at it before.

    This tutorial is the best one I've found yet. It's for x86 Assembler.I like it because it is stone simple.

    Good to use to get going and at least have a foothold in assembler.

    It's 'Learn Assembler in One Hour'. Down near the bottom of list.

    Little wrinkle is it may not be 100% compatible running in Freebasic compiler because it's for Qbasic.

    Qbasic is available but Dosbox and Virtual Machines are a hassle.

    EDIT

    Just remembered why we are doing Assembler with microcontrollers.

    You can scramble your PC bigtime with assembler.

    If you make a PIC or Propeller unusable it's on big deal.

    Looks like we better use a DIP propeller for this.Not one of the SMD boards.

  • You could limit yourself to a DIP packaged Propeller 1, but you'll probably find something like the FLiP more useful. The FLiP has built-in voltage regulators, crystal, 64K EEPROM, and USB programming interface ... even two LEDs. You can't mess up the LEDs. It's hard to mess up the EEPROM. You could burn out the USB interface if you really tried. Mostly you have to avoid doing explicit output to the USB programming interface's output (I/O pin 31).

    He's got one coming in the mail, in fact.

    Hey Mike, how about the MN class with Blockly?
