Debian jessie and gnupic

Martin McCormick-3
I have some PIC projects written for gpasm and gpsim. The system
currently runs Debian wheezy and it is getting rather long of
tooth and should be upgraded to at least the jessie version.

        I want to still use the command line to program PIC's so
my question is simply ;
Will the command line tools to compile, simulate and program
survive the upgrade? If not, are there any newer command-line
tools that will talk to a PicStart+ as most of the PIC's I have
are also old but still capable of doing useful things.

I don't know, but I know how to find out.

Install schroot on the Debian Wheezy system, then debootstrap to build
a Debian Jessie instance, copy your source tree, then start the
schroot while in the copy, and try compiling, building, and
device-programming.

Great suggestion. Thank you and I'll give it a try. I don't
program every day but I would hate to lose the capability.

        BTW, There has not been a message on this list since
August 31 of 2016 so I wasn't even sure if it still existed.
Again, many thanks.
