The PICList is a collection of people interested in the Microchip PIC and other similar processors who have joined the PICList@MIT.EDU mailing list.
This web site is an FAQ and archive for the email list which was started, and is still maintained, by James Newton who was a former list member and admin for several years. Mr. Newton is (as of 2008/06/09 19:20) no longer an administrator for the PICList mailing list and is in no way responsible for its content. This web site is part of the larger massmind collection. The site is huge (~3GB), and not fully indexed by Google or any other search engine, but can be fully searched (slowly) here:
Useful FAQ sections:
If you are new, read the List Introduction, below, especially the parts about Topics and how to compose a post that will allow us to help you.
Please avoid unnecessary list traffic by reviewing the FAQ and searching the archive before posting. Thank you.

You may not see your message echoed on the PIClist, and it may take more than a day before anyone responds since most people only read their PICList mail once a day and they are all over the world. If no one responds after a few days, read the rest of this page, and Myke Predko's general list guidelines at www.piclist.com/../listguide, rethink your post and add a "Nobody responded to my last post, what am I doing wrong?" to the beginning and send it again.
If you decide to leave, you may unsubscribe at the PICList Mailman page
The PICList uses topics and topic filtering to try to allow a greater range of discussion while still respecting the fact that many hardcore engineers, who are valuable resources to the list, may have little time to read off topic posts and need a reliable way to filter them out so that they can spend what time they have concentrating on the topic they are most interested in. Despite our name, the PICList also hosts discussions related to other embedded controllers.
Topic tags must be at the start of the subject line and enclosed in brackets "[" and "]". For example, the current topics are:
If you don't use one of these, other people will not see your posts. People who are interested only in the PIC itself listen to [PIC], people who are also interested in general engineering issues still listen to [PIC] and also listen to [EE] and people who are also interested in anything PICListers have to say also listen to [OT]. People who are interested in buying or selling also listen to [BUY] and [AD].
So: Please pick ONE that matches the subject of your post and type it at the start of the subject line and then continue. Putting a topic tag in, filters the post IN to that topic rather than filtering it OUT of the other topics. Ok? Let me say that again...
Putting a topic tag in, filters the post IN to that topic.
The point of this is that it will reduce the likelihood of people posting comments about the space program with [PIC] at the start of the subject line. It also breaks up the PICList in to "Channels" where each topic can be turned on or off with a command to the list server. If you are very busy, then you can only turn on the [PIC] channel and turn the others off. Just tell the list server to only send [PIC] topics by changing your Mailman options at the PICList Mailman page.
Post your questions to the QUESTIONS page. Please do NOT post questions here.
