  1. I found it! linker option -rt <the address> Thanks for reading and thinking. Frans.
  2. Hi, All, It has not happend jet, overwriting my bootloader, but Murphy says it will one day. How do I tell BoostC to protect my bootlader in the upper 256 bytes. I have seen, in CCS. #org 0x0F00,0x0FFF Thanks, Frans.
  3. Hi All, Does someone have experience with a D2XX driver for the FTDI FT232BM on Terminal of SourceBoost? This D2XX drive, instead of a VCP ( Virtual Com ), was needed with my previous development system for downloading. With best regards. Frans.
  4. Hi Pavel,David, Did you ever thought of lining up the horizontal scroll button in the code editor window in SourceBoost IDE with the tab distance? With best regards, Frans.
  5. Hi Paul, How sure are you that the PIC is really running. Why don't you put a blinking character on the display, not too fast, not timed by interrupt :-) but software in your main/while(1) So then when this character is blinking you now the PIC is running. In every project I always try to have a free pin, so I can put a LED/ or scope on it and watch the activity. I will search further because in my current project Timer2 is on the menu too, although the interrupt loopt is running here on a F874 [ That is all I have at the moment. ] Late note: In thr tmrhandler you have this FSR, INDF saving and restoring. Any particular reason to do that?. Or just a left over from troubleshoot! With best regards, Frans.
  6. Hi Paul, You are right I found it. Maybe Dave is right, normally PR is 255 at start-up as the data sheet says. But in your code I found a _PR2 = 10 It is just after the clear_bit (_ANSEL, _ANS6 )..... I also noticed you commented out the adres of _ANSEL. With best regards, Frans.
  7. Hi Paul, Forget about my previous post. I made a mistake there, 2 changes at once leaves the error syndrome. but you forgot to turn on timer 2 Put: set_bit ( _T2CON , TMR2ON ) ; in the setup. With best regards. Frans.
  8. Hi Paul, Try this in your interrupt. if ( (_PIR1 & 2) != 0 ) I hope this is in time and helps. With best regards, Frans. Note: I edited it to your naming of registers. Frans.
  9. Hi All, This month in Circuit Cellar, #178, May 2005, a short resume of BoostC as part of a feature article about USB Interface development. With best regards, Frans.
  10. Hi Paul, I am not familiar wiht the particular chip, but ... Did you? Have the Global interrupt enable flag set to on? Have the individual peripheral interrupt enable set to on? Do not forget to clear the individual peripheral interrupt flag just before leaving the interrupt code, when you have dealt with the interrupt code. Depending on the chip, sometimes peripherals wont work with their interrupt flag still set. In these cases you have to clear the flags outside the interrupt loop. I hope this helps. Frans.
  11. Hi LcSD53, Thanks for the link. I did a quick read, it may take awhile before I realy understand it. The last pragraph of the text in the link does not make things better. I hope I will be cured some day. :-) In the mean time it will be trial and error. I guess. With best regards, Frans.
  12. Hi Dave, When this holidays week is over I will print the manuals on decent color printer to read while commuting. Thanks for the wonderfull SourceBoostIDE. With best regards, Frans.
  13. Hi, Dave,Pavel, Additon of a feature which allows you to sent a selected declaration to the header file as a prototype. It can be extend to have the external qualification added on demand. A right mouse feature typically. A swap source/header exists but this feature does not need the copy/swap/paste maneuver. With best regards, Frans.
  14. Hi Dave,Pavel, Addition of a feature which enable you to indent or outdent a selected segment of code. Imagine you have just added another other loop to your code and now yo are shifting the code to match you favorite layout. With best regards, Frans.
  15. Hi Pavel, I have sent the details to support. Attachment is: Uppercasings With best regards, Frans.
  16. Hi All, I managed to get the code tags right this time. Frans.
  17. Hi Dave, Pavel, Symptom: SourceBoostIDE. All characters are converted to Upper case when Match Case in Search options is not checked and the search criteria is met. Wanted behaviour: Leave character in their respective case. Use Match Case only as a search criterium. With best regards, Frans.
  18. Hi Dave, Ok, I have worked out a complete example, including test to validate the method. There is plenty of comment to follow what I am doing and for what purpose. Thanks for having me do this. I enjoyed every mistake of it. For All, Here is my implementation of the C2C example about Reading, Writing and Erasing the EEprom under program control. There are three routine's for Writing, Reading and Erasing. The Main routine is for testing and showing the code is doing what it is supposed to do.

With best regards, Frans.
  19. Hi Dave, Oh, I see, some others have been busier than me. :-) I got it finished. Where shal I put it? Frans.
  20. Hi Dave, Pavel, Report of misleading error after compiling. I made a typo in a sub declaration, like this: char eeprom_read(cahr adresa) // read from eeprom The compiler says it is missing the right parenthesis. If you can solve this, that would be fine. With best regards. Frans.
  21. Hi Dave, Thanks, I wil give it a go and let you know. With best regards, Frans.
  22. Hi All, BoostC has a #pragma for putting dat into the eeprom. Does it have functions to read the eeprom? With best regards, Frans.
  23. Hi hvn0005, I am not much of a C programmer, but I can see some mistakes in your program. You declared J to be an int by adding something to it does not change the type, it stays an int unless something is higher in rank than int. You declared X[] to be an array of char to which you want to assign a value of int. The other one I see is in the for statement, the end condition goes to something which is not declared here but hopefully elsewhere. Even if J was declared a char, the sum 226+40 would make 266, which is bigger than a char can hold. I hope this helps. Frans.
  24. You can put any data into rom char*. Use '\' and than a number. For example to put 0,1,2,100,255 into rom use: rom char *ptr = "\0\1\2\100\255"; Regards, Pavel <{POST_SNAPBACK}> Hi Pavel, Yes , that works. The numbers must be decimals. A rather long _get, so if one is in tight ROM then avoid small tables. Thanks for helping me out. With best regards, Frans.
  25. You can't do it in BoostC. Why do you need this? Regards, Pavel <{POST_SNAPBACK}> hi Pavel, Well I need a table in rom. BoostC only supports rom char* text = 'text' unfortunately most of my data can not be translated into text. Then I thought of doing it in asm{} but came upon this HIGH and LOW not recognized by BoostC, but if you look inside the .asm BoostC generates, you see them being there. With best regards, Frans.
