I just noticed that you wrote the stepper firmware in C. It would be good to know which compiler is needed to compile it. Especially since most PIC C compilers differ quite a bit, and most are commercial.

I compiled it with MikroC, which is a commercial compiler. I do not know of any good free C compilers, you know of one? If so I'll investigate the options you need to take into account when compiling. Nevertheless someone can implement the code I've put in the download section and use it with their own compiler of course. That is also why I put the hex files in there. Just to make it easy on people.

free PIC C compiler
- Danny, the only really free PIC C compiler that I know is SDCC. I think their PIC support has really gotten better since I took a look at it several years ago. I read about folks using it for USB firmware for the USB pics. That tells me that the compiler is worth looking at. I'm still kinda stuck in the ASM world when it comes to PICs.
- SDCC is available here: http://sdcc.sourceforge.net/
