AFAIK, the PIC controllers (16 and 32 Bit) use a propriety debug
interface to be accessed by "PICKit" an "ICD-3" adapters. They do use a
gnu based (though propriety made, and payed) C-compiler and linker .
AFAI understand they use gdb under the hood and as there is the
("NETBeans" based "MPLab-X" IDE that runs as well on Windows as on
Linux, it should be possible to use the Lazarus to debug a PIC32 device,
if you can set up the Lazarus-gdb-interface appropriately.
Do you plan for allowing PIC32 development using Lazarus ? I suppose for
that you not only need the gdb interface, but also a way to integrate
MPLab-X originated library files to be integrated in the RTL to have the
processor even start running.
And/or do you plan to allow for MPLab-X projects to integrate fpc
generated units ?
