Clean: Done.

Executing: "C:\Program Files (x86)\SourceBoost\boostc_pic18.exe" uart.c -O1 -W1 -t 18F26K80

There are couple of issues in your code. The source of the errors you see is in the backslashes you left in the macros:


#define uart1Init \ rs232Init<PIE1,TX1IE,PIE1,RC1IE,RCSTA,CREN,RCSTA,SPEN>

_________________^^^________ what is this one for?


Another problem that won't let you compile after you fix the backslashes is that the system include is not the first include in your code. This will cause all kind of problems as the code from uart_driver.h that you include before system.h uses all kind of information from this system header.
