Define Constants In Boostbasic

Recommended Posts

I'm trying to define constants and I'm having some difficulties.

 

I tried something like VB:

 

Const Maxval 225

 

But that gave me a compilation error. Then, I tried to use the standard #define, but I get another type of problem. Consider this:

#define Maxval 225
Dim PotValue as byte
PotValue=Maxval

 

The compiler throws an error:

Sample_bas.bas(26): error: general error
Sample_bas.bas(26): error: failure
Exit code was 1

 

 

I can make my program work by using variables to hold constants, but it's a waste of precious ram.

This code compiles with error under BoostBasic:

#define Maxval 225

sub main()

    Dim PotValue as byte 
    PotValue=Maxval
    
end sub
