Preprocessor Directive #warn

Recommended Posts



when debugging my code, I use a preprocessor directive 'DEBUG' that I define at the command line using the '-d' option.


I can then in my code skip certain sections that are hard to simulate, e.g. waiting for the completion of a serial transmission of the hardware UART unit in a PIC.


Would it be possible to add a preporcessor directive '#warn' that prints its argument to the output pane? It would do exactly the same as the #error directive, but it should not cause a compilation error.


In this way I could add a code statement like this:


#ifdef DEBUG
#warn "Debugging is enabled, certain code sections will be skipped!"


This way, it would be harder to 'forget' that the debugging directive is enabled, and thus loading code that won't work in your target device.


Kind regards,
