Hello,
just wanted to share with you a new BASIC compiler for PIC18, PIC24/dsPIC and PIC32. It's a structured basic and has very VB like syntax.

http://www.firewing.info/

PIC18 version is limited to some PIC18 chips, but for PIC24 and PIC32 the compiler is fully free and has no limitations.

Thanks, I was actually looking more for experience with them rather than what it has.  As you know, a lot of libraries exist and many of them are simply SH*T.

The compiler has been written by the same guy who wrote Swordfish Basic. Their syntax is obviously very similar.
The nice thing is that the libraries are open source and written in the Basic (Swordfish and Firewing) itself. As for the quality of the libs, those provided by the author are excellent. Those provided by other contributors have same quality as those of open source codes for any project: i.e. they range from excellent to bad, but they have the merit to exists and to have been "shared for free".

I've just been playing with Firewing having used Swordfish previously. There does seem to be a limitation in that it is only possible easily to use processors that are supported in MPLAB IDE. Newer processors such as the PIC32MX170 are only supported by MPLabX and I couldn't find an easy way to configure them in Firewing. The import software on the Firewing website only works with MPLAB IDE
