Linker Failure On Mult/div C Statement

Recommended Posts

IDE version 5.9.1

Compiler and Linker versions 2.0.1 Beta

Boost C compiler

Target is PIC16F877


The following code compiles but linker fails (no specific failure mentioned)


#include <system.h>


void main(void)


unsigned short speed=10, dist=20;

unsigned short temp;

temp = speed*dist/2;



Changing the calculation:

temp = speed*dist/2;



temp = dist*speed;

temp = temp/2; // works in linker
