Programming compilers?

Hi guys! Well, I usually program using Microsoft's visual studio suite; however, I'm getting tired of my programs requiring the .net framework to run. Basically, I was wondering what compilers programmers use to write their programs. I really don't care what the language is, I have a fairly broad knowledge of programming languages, and I could always pick up another if need be. Anyway, could anyone point me out a few names of compilers? I would be very grateful. (Particularly if they were free) Thanks!

Unzip Program? Answered

I had winzip something and it was lame, I don't want to buy it and it has a bunch of buttons and stuff.  Is there an unzip program that lets me just select multiple zip folders and drop them all into a folder, with an easy left click, like notepad ++ which has an edit option on all the file sub menus.  I remember back in the day with XP, i believe it had a really good unzip thing.

Programming a microcontroller?

Hi everyone I have got a MICROCHIP - PIC16F616 to play with, I am going to write a little program and load on it. However, I have a few questions before I do this. 1. How do I know whether language I should write? like C or Assembly? does it tell you in the datasheet (link above), because I don't seem to find it. 2. What kind of program do I need for loading the program into the chip? is it also an information I can find in the datasheet? or it is really some common sense between programmer. My supervisor doesn't offer much help... Extra question Here is the link of open programming, I am just curcious that if I build this programmer (I have one for my chip, but just wanna learn something), does it mean that I can use this to connect my microcontroller and my computer, so to load the program into the microcontroller? Many thanks

Flowchart Programs? Answered

I have had enough of making flowcharts from scratch and despite there being thousands of programs available, I have yet to find one with the following abilities.   -Make chart automatically, size/formatting based on number of connections -Take inputs from a list, for example I put in all the words, then I can add tags to three categories, incoming, outgoing, and bi-directional connections which link similar parts. My current example is a list of 60 words which have various relationships.  They range from bonds (ionic, covalent polar, hydrogen...) to carbohydrates.  It would be great to just put in the list and tag the words that are related, so when I put in bonds, I could tag the different types.  If I put in carbohydrates I could tag organic compounds.  Then it could be put into a visual flow chart. If someone gives me the answer google it I would be quite frustrated, I have been through many pages of results to no avail and I have tried many "automatic" flowchart programs.  I know making a program to analyze connections wouldn't be too hard, put I have no idea how to make a program with customized graphics, let alone an automatic one. So making one isn't quite going to work.

programming help

First of all, I am new to this. But for my CEIS course project I decided to program an rc vehicle because I thought it would be COOL! Now I am knee deep into the project and I am needing guidance.  So I am going to attempt to stack raspberry pi hats. One adafruit pwm for servos and the other adafruit pwm for dc and stepper motors. The first thing I done wrong was solder the gpio headers on backwards. Since I'm not too professional with a soldering iron I ended up making the drives of no use and ordered more. Before I done that, I got my pi camera working! Still need to program the pan/tilt servos. I have battery power, wiring, almost everything as far as hardware. Just not sure if I am headed in the right direction. I tried different things with python and the i2c but now when I start up the Kernel Module fails.  Any help will be great!

PIC Programming Software

I am just starting to get into PICs, problem is, I can't find a program. All these tutorials on PICs on Instructalbes talk about the hardware, but not very many talk about software. I am pretty fluent in VBasic/Basic so I would like a developer that works in that language or C/C++. I have PIC Prog, but that just downloads it. Anyway here's what I need help finding: -Free devolpment and compiler program -Preferably programs with Basic or C -Works with JDM2 programmers. Yes I have MCU experience, but it's been with an OOPic. I can't use it on everything so I am switching to PICs. Anyway if anyone can help me with software solutions, I'd really appreciate it.
