No, directly from producer. Very cute design with intechangable sockets
varying from simple 8-pin DIP socket up to profi ZIF sockets for SMD
devices.

Why not use Windows ? Do you really want to re-invent the wheel ?

Want to donate me one? If yes, I'd like to have 64-bit XP Pro. Or better,
64-bit 2003 Server :)

But seriously - those windows programming programs (yuck!):
1. Have *UGLY* gui
2. Are close-sourced (mostly)
3. Aren't easy expandable
4. Don't quite work on X86_64 platform
5. Need CPU-expensive emulation on Linux (if work at all - they don't on my
system)

My plan is like that:
1. Nice, customizable full screen GUI
2. Do it open-source
3. Move programming algorithms out of main application to independent
modules (or better, describe algo as an XML file)
4&5. Do it in platform-independent way (preferably Java) so just hardware-
dependent code would be native (just a ParPort access)

Having it in Java - perhaps it would be relative easy to incorporate it in
some framework, for example Eclipse. Imagine develop->compile->program
process in a single IDE !!

I wouldn't call it re-inventing a wheel... Mr Dunlop didn't re-invent
wheel - he just made it way more comfortable to use :D

HellO!

I have a Willem-compatible EPROM/FLASH/MCU/Whatever necessary programmer. I
have some software with it, but guess - windows only. (no, it doesn't run
on my WINE).

I decided to write my own application (at least for the basic MCUs, like
AVRs and 89C*051), but I stuck at the protocol.

My question is: is there any documentation on how to program this kind of
programmer? I found, that some LPT lines control VCC and VPP but that's how
far I got.

I still insist on doing it myself Smile The how-tos on the net are for ancient
versions of WINE - I rely on a newer one.
