    Hmmm... I think you will need to go assembly for this one....
    A friend of mine works with stuff like that... he uses assembly language for the hardware ad fava for th moitoring software

    Do you have a development board with this processor on it - if so, from who?

    Do you have a C compiler for it - if so, which one?

    Do you already know how to program in C in a desktop environment? If not, then embedded C programming really isn't a good place to start.
    If you dance barefoot on the broken glass of undefined behaviour, you've got to expect the occasional cut.
    If at first you don't succeed, try writing your phone number on the exam paper.

    GCC can compile code for that processor.

    i already have gcc (the compiler for this type)
    i already know how to program in C.
    i already have the board with H8 processor, i just have to connect it with my PC.

    and by the way, i have made a program already showing the infamous "HELLO WORLD" on the LCD attacehed with the board.

    anyway, now, i am trying to write one which will relay message thru LAN.

    thanks.

    Excellent, then you've already solved many of the issues needed to make programs.

    Now, what is your REAL question?

    > do you know anything about programming in C and embed it on a chip
    Pretty much the same as on a PC, exept for
    - there's no OS
    - there's less RAM
    - it's not as quick
    - .....

    Does your board have a LAN interface?
    Did it come with any libaries?
    Do those libraries support anything looking like the traditional BSD socket interface?
