Ok, so you got your asm file converted into hex, what you need now is a programmer to "blow" the hex into the pic........

look here:

for a suitable programmer, you can either buy/build it.......email him he's quite helpful.

the programmer runs from the serial port, you can download the software for it too or else use ic-prog, which is what I use..

there are basically 2 types of programmer.....Serial based and parallel based.......this refers to the port connection on your pc.

The Pony Prog device uses the serial port........and his software.

Icprog is suitable for both serial and parallel programmers but care is needed to ensure compatability........

There is other software available as hardware too......depends what you want and what you want to do with it...........personally I have several programmers, some commercially produced and others I've built myself.......

The type of the programmer also somtimes refers to how the PIC is programmed, some PICs can be programmed in a Parallel fasion, while most are programmed in a serial manner, its best that you check the datasheet of the PIC you wish to use. From memory i think the 873 is programmed in a seriel manner.
