Boostc 1.8 Non Exisistent Config Locations

Recommended Posts

Bug description:

BOOSTC 1.8 defines unimplemented configuration memory


Steps to reproduce:

1.) Compile program for PIC18F2455

#include <system.h>

#pragma DATA   _CONFIG1L, 00100100b                                                                                             
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG1H, 00001111b                                                                                           
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG2L, 00111111b                                                                                         
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG2H, 00011110b                                                                                        
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG3H, 10000000b                                                                                            
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG4L, 10000001b  // DEBUG AND LVP off                                                                                        
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG5L, 00001111b                                                                                           
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG5H, 11000000b                                                                                            
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG6L, 00001111b                                                                                           
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG6H, 11100000b                                                                                            
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG7L, 00001111b                                                                                             
#pragma DATA   _CONFIG7H, 01000000b   

void interrupt( void )
   clear_bit( intcon, TMR0IF );  //clear TMR0 overflow flag
void main()
   trisb = 0;  //configure port B
   portb = 0;
   clear_bit( t0con, T0CS );  // select internal clock
   clear_bit( t0con, T0PS3 );  // select pres-scaler
   set_bit( t0con, T0PS0 );  // set pres-scaler to 1:256
   set_bit( t0con, T0PS1 );  
   set_bit( t0con, T0PS2 );
   set_bit( intcon, GIE );    // enable interrupts    
   set_bit( intcon, TMR0IE ); //enable TMR0 overflow bit    
   while( 1 ) {}

2.) Examine listing

	ORG 0x00300000
300000  0F24      	DW 0x0F24
300002  1E3F      	DW 0x1E3F
ORG 0x00300004
300004  80FF      	DW 0x80FF
300006  FF81      	DW 0xFF81
ORG 0x00300008
300008  C00F      	DW 0xC00F
30000A  E00F      	DW 0xE00F
30000C  400F      	DW 0x400F


Expected behavior:

Config locations 300004 and 300007 do not exist on the microprocessor but FF is defined for that location. When a non-existent config location is read 0 is returned. This may cause a problem in verification. It would be nice if 0 were loaded in these two locations.


Is the problem 100% reproducible:


SourceBoost version: 5.7

Compiler: BoostC

Compiler version: Compiler Version 1.8 Alpha (for PIC18 architecture)

OS: Windows 98
