[time-nuts] precision timing pulse

Just a short comment on getting a PIC up and running.  Microchip have come out with a number of tools, especially their "Configurator" software that will get you started pretty quickly.  And there is a long list of example programs on microchip's website for simple programs that do things like read the ADC, write to a UART, etc.

If you want cycle-accurate timing, one approach is to count cycles.  If you 
have an assembly level background, the PIC is as good as any small chip.  
Yes, it's a pain to get started if you don't have a working setup or a friend 
with one you can copy.

These are my opinions.  I hate spam.
