What is the advantage to using PCW vs. PCM with MPLAB® IDE?

For a one-time project, PCM with MPLAB® IDE will probably work fine.

However, for multiple or long-term projects, PCW has a lot more features that will make programming easier. The C Aware Real-Time Debugger, Call tree, project wizard, help functions, 50+ example programs, and consistent color syntax all contribute to efficient programming.
