an eval board to do the programming...may just be able to plug the
cable in and program the code right into it...PIC should have a lot of
different tools you can download for compiling and programming it
yourself...I would look for a PIC developers site that is for
beginners which should exists somewhere I'm guessing given the
popularity of PICs. With the right compiler (which I'm guessing there
is a free version of) and programmer (also should be a free one), you
could do it yourself without much trouble I have to believe. I only
know AVR's which is basically the equivalent, and it has all the above
mentioned tools for free. And there is a lot of support on
avrfreaks.com specifically for that, so I gotta believe someone could
help you do this easily from a PIC equivalent site.
Eval boards have programmers built in, which is what motivated that suggestion. The ones you get from Microchip are very very nice, and cost lots of $$.
There's gotta be a usable, cheap USB/PIC programmer out there, though.
Its called the ICD2. Can debug or program PICs.
