Earlier this week I came across your bootloader, and can report that it is now up and running. The discovery of the Bootloader was perfectly timed as I am currently developing a simple module to carry a 16F877 to allow target hardware to be developed with a direct PC serial link.
The pcb carries a 16F877, a MAX232, a 9 pin D-type connector for serial link to PC and 8 way RJ45 to connect to target hardware. If the '877 is fitted into a wirewrap socket, this in turn can be plugged into any target board which has a 40 way DIL socket fitted for the processor.
My main area of development is intelligent home automation hardware, with a micro-web server connected via a V23 modem to the standard telephone line.
I have developed V23 modem code and DTMF tone generation code written for any PIC from a 16C54 upwards.
I am combining this to put a communications front end onto the wwwPIC web server. This should just fit into the 1k codespace of a 16F84.
Your bootloader was the missing link to reduce coding turn around time and thus get this module up and running quickly.
I soon hope to make the V23 and DTMF routines available for others to use directly in their projects to obtain inter-PIC connectivity using the conventional telephone network.
