Hi Pete,

The quick answer is "hopefully"...

At the moment, FlowCode uses C2C as an underlying 'C' compiler. C2C does not support the 16F91x series and so FlowCode can't.

But we are currently working on a new version of FlowCode that is based on a better 'C' compiler - BoostC - which does support these devices. It also supports the 18F series of PICmicros.

I can't see any real problem getting FlowCode to generate HEX code compatible with the 16F91x series. The only potential pitfall I see is with updating our PPP programming software to download the code to the actual chip - but even this has a good chance of being sorted.
