'[PIC] usb pickit name change'

I'm moving my development of the usb_pickit programmer over to sourceforge.

As part of the movement, I am dropping the 'usb_' from the name.
Reasons for this:
1.  There is no other kind of Pickit. If there was, we would endeavor
to support it as well.
2.  The name "pickit" is easier to type (not requiring the shift key).
It doesn't conflict with the Unix name of any other program as far as
I can tell.

Any objections, speak now or forever hold your peace.

Regards,
Mark

Yes, and this is a program to control those products.

Right now the products include PICkit 1 (using 16C765 OTP, a
programmer and a demo kit) and PICkit 2 ( using 18F2550, a
small ICSP programmer). Wouter has PICKit 1 clones
cum demo boards for his class and he is planning PICkit 2
clones as well.

I think you'll find that PICkit is a Microchip trademark - apart from being confusing to use the same name,
even if it's related in some way, you may find problems if you do!

Speaking of confusing - I can't work out exactly what it is that you are talking about, and how it relates to
Microchip's PICkits 1 and 2...

I am not Mark but I happen to know usb_pickit quite well. :)

usb_pickit is Linux/Win32/(MacOS X?) version of open source
host program for Microchip's PICkit 1 and PICkit 2 (not yet
working for PICkit 2) using libusb/libusb-win32. Microchip
only supports Windows. Unsupported MacOS X application is
available from Microchip for PICkit 1 though.

With usb_pickit, one can script usb_pickit under Linux/Windows
since it is a command line application. Of course a GUI
version would be nice as well. :)

Using usb_pickit, it is also possible to extend the functionality
of PICkit 1/2 to support more chips than Microchip officially
claims to support.

I am not so sure about the trademark issue though.

Regards,
Xiaofan
