PK2DeviceFile.dat editing tool

pickit2-top-450

AMX has written a command line tool to modify device files that are used by the pk2cmd tool:

This gives a new device file named “pk2dev.dat”.
I was able to dump and recompile the PK2DeviceFile.dat I am using and checked that the files are identical using “diff”. There are probably
still some bugs but I think it might be usable already.  I attached the source code, you need libconfuse to compile it and it probaly wont work under windows natively (because the are some system(“mkdir …”) calls as well as “/” in filenames …).

    With this tool is it possible to add new (originally not supported) devices to the device file? I’d like to use Pickit2 with “GA300″ series of PIC24F microcontrollers. These are not supported with pickit2.
