This is a Windows 95 Frontend or Menu type setup that allows you to
Launch Editors, Compilers, Programmers from the same Window using a GUI.
It will also allow you to Auto Compile and Auto Burn a Chip after exiting
the editor. It remembers all the settings and files you were using when
you exited from the program last. This means the Last Source File, Last
Pic Type, Last work directory, Last Programmer and compiler ......
Shortened Filenames of EXE and ICO
If MFE.ICO is not found, we don't use it!
Added Correct Chips to MFE for PBC
Added Support for 5 Compilers or Batchfiles
Added Support for 3 Editors
Added Support for 2 Hardware Programmer
Mon Dec 29 01:58:02 1997 From: richard skinner rwskinner@WORLDNET.ATT.NET Subject: Free Win95 Front End Comments: To: email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org To: PICLIST@MITVMA.MIT.EDU I don't know if anyone is interested or not, but I just wrote a nice little front end for Windows 95 that allows Editing, Creating, & Syntax Checking of .BAS files using Stamp.exe. This Front End Also Allows Compiling the .BAS files into .SRC and .HEX Files using PBC.EXE. It Also Remembers the last program, chip type, options you used. You can work with and compile programs in different directories and drives instead of having to keep every source file in the same directory as your compilers. You must own your own Stamp.Exe and PM.exe and PBC.exe. PM.Exe and Stamp.Exe is written by Parallax,Inc. and is Free on their Web Site www.parallaxinc.com PBC.EXE is Pic Basic Compiler by MicroEngineering Labs,Inc. MEL can be reached at www.melabs.com If your Interested in having a copy email me direct and just ask.

Since there isn't an Editor built into the MEL Compiler I wrote a frontend. The frontend allows you to load files or create files with stamp.exe and do a dummy run ALT R to check syntax. If your satisfied with the results, then save your code in stamp.exe using ALT S then escape from Stamp.EXE Now, you can select your default options and run the MEL Compiler by clicking on Compiler Button. I can make some changes to the code if we need to.... Here it is, keep in mind its simple and I wrote it for myself but if anyone else can use they are free to. Richard

I'm sure there is room for lots of improvement, but the only way I can give people what they want is to hear from them. Richard Skinner firstname.lastname@example.org ============================================================= 01/03/98 Version 1.02b ============= Added CheckBoxes for Hints, Auto-Compile, Auto-Program Use Hints, if selected, Hint Boxes will appear over each Item when selecting that item. If AutoCompile is selected, After Editing a Source File, The Selected Compiler Automatically Launches, Compiles, and Returns. Then If AutoBurn is Selected, the Hardware Programmer is Launched, Using the FileName Selected with The Default Extension for that Programmer. (.HEX) Double Clicking on a File in the FileList Box will Lauch the Editor you have Selected. MFE and the Setup Windows are Now Sizeable with Scroll Bars for those running different screen resolutions. Edit Windows and Compiler Windows "MUST" be set for "CLOSE ON EXIT" Unless you want to see the compilers results. However, MFE will Not get control back until the DOS Windows are Closed. I could autoclose the windows but that would make it hard to Debug Compiler Errors. 01/01/98 Version 1.01b ============= Shortened Filenames of EXE and ICO If MFE.ICO is not found, we don't use it! Added Correct Chips to MFE for PBC Added Support for 5 Compilers or Batchfiles Added Support for 3 Editors Added Support for 2 Hardware Programmer Double Clicking on a File in the File List Box Automatically invokes your selected Editor. Uses full pathnames now so All the .EXE's don't require having a Path Set to them. 12/24/97 Version 1.00b ============= Initial Release of MFE. Wasn't really geared for Public Use.mfe.zip 130K.
