Hi have been searching around around for what compiler is used with MPIDE with UNO32 and where I can find the documentation. When doing a search I come up with two, one is a fork with gcc the other is Microchip. If anyone knows which and where please the wealth.

Mike, both are true. The compiler that comes with MPIDE is a fork of the the C32 compiler from Microchip, which is a gcc derivative. The compiler fork was created by Microchip specifically for this project.

For 99% of the questions you may have, the documents for C32 will answer your question. C32 is a free download, so you can download it from Microchip ( and and read the docs.
