A Guide to Buying and Activating a Pro Key License for XC8 Compiler

The MPLAB XC8 C Compiler is a full-featured, highly-optimized ANSI C compiler for all 8-bit AVR and PIC Microcontroller families. This compiler integrates into Microchips MPLAB(R) X IDE, is compatible with all Microchip debuggers and emulators, and runs on Windows, Linux and Mac OS X.The MPLAB XC8 PRO Workstation license unlocks the full potential and performance of all possible optimizations.The MPLAB XC8 compiler license also comes with 12 months of High Priority Access, a maintenance subscription, providing web access to new version releases, priority technical support for the compiler and free shipping for development tool orders on Microchip Direct.

The aspic is their assembler, and from microchip user manual on XC8 it is not clear what signal 11 refers to.Further testing showed that it has something to do with their license manager xclm, because if I try to build their code without any optimizations, and in free mode, it builds fine. As we all know by now, this results in bloated code full of unnecessary loops and variables being copied back and forth.

Alrighty, so first, the signal 11 from the assembler means it segfaulted on input (trying to do all optimizations in the PRO version of the compiler). Obviously, in free version where it does not have to do anything it does not segfaults for obvious reasons.
