I was investigating the use of SDCC for the PIC16F1936. Problem is that SDCC only appears to support two instruction sets, pic14 and pic16. pic14 refers to the 14 bit opcodes used in the PIC16 series and pic16 to the PIC18 series. I could not see any support for the enhanced 14 bit instruction set used in the PIC16F1936 which is different to the standard instruction set in many ways. I searched for the extra instructions in the source files and did not find them.

I did consider adding the support myself but soon realised that I have no idea how a C compiler works.

Hello SDCC (mailing list),

Basically I'd like to verify that the pearl scripts used to generate support for PIC16 MCU's will work with the new* PIC16F1939 before I order 5 or 10 of them.

*apparently they started producing the PIC16F1939 10 days ago ...
