#98645 - Use Microsoft Excel
Responding to: Jan Waclawek's previous message
Although far from perfect, it is possible to load a list file into Microsoft Excel and using a lookup table of the instruction cycle time plus a little massaging it is possible to use Excel to calculate the number of cycles. It seems to me that it makes more sense to use this technique for critical pieces of code rather than the whole listing. Generally speaking though, since most people have the application on their computer, it costs nothing to try.

I apologize for being repetitive as I have mentioned my book before, but I do cover this topic in "Excel by Example : A Microsoft Excel Cookbook for Electronics Engineers" publ;ished by Elsevier/Newnes, ISBN 0750677562.
