    Tried that before I wrote. No longs used, variables are all unsigned and only a few unsigned shorts used. I can't see what's happening, .asm and .lst files are blank. It compiles fine but crashes at the start of linking due to the RAM limitation.

    BoostC 6.04 compiled my code for a PIC16f676 leaving 21% of the RAM free. The same code using BoostC 6.10 or 6.11 runs 1% over in RAM usage and fails. Any settings that can be used to correct this?

    LCD plug-in

    That's of great help?? I'll let you know what I find.

    LCD plug-in

    I've found and issue that caused some of the problem. UART code that hung the simulator unexpectedly. The LCD does work if I comment out any send command on the hardware UART. Commands where the UART only talks when talked to can be used. Unfortunatly this brings up a worse bug. The UART worked fine untill I used a long integer in an AD read. I've rechecked and if I leave adresh & adresl as bytes the UART's fine. But, in order to scale the AD I need to combine them into one 16 bit integer. As soon as I even declare the 16 bit integer the UART's baud rate is off. With optimization at medium or off, I get one clear character back, and that's it. The AD's long integer and the UART code have nothing to do with each other, makes no sense why it's happening (for now). The UART has never given me problems before. 8051's etc. don't seem anywhere near as buggy as the PIC. I'm looking through the assembled code to see where the bug is now. The UART can't be simulated (I assume...), so this may be slow going. Any ideas.

    LCD plug-in

    I'm seeing the same problem you have. Works for a real LCD & PIC16F877, but doesn't work on the Plug-in. The sample program works with the plug-in, but my code doesn't work with the plug-in. I've tried about everything... still no luck. It would be a helpful debugging tool if it works. Did you ever resolve this???
