  1. I'm working on using my own RS232 implimentation because it takes some time for me to get the next character I want to send. My goal is to have something like this: 1) Write a character to the transmit buffer. 2) Return to code to get the next character to send while the previous character (in step 1) is being sent. 3) Send the next character when the transmit buffer is empty. Ideally, I will have no delays. I want to check when the transmit buffer is empty, then send the next character. The problem that I'm having is to do with knowing when the transmit buffer is empty. I am loo
  2. Does using a higher baud use more power though? I'm by no means a hardware expert, but I would think that a higher transmission rate would draw more power. I was wondering about that, maybe someone knows for sure? I'm working ona project that sends 7 bytes about every 10 minutes. I need the battery life of my circuit to be as good as possible, but I don't really need a fast transmission rate. I'm not even sure how one would calculate the power used by an IC. Do you just connect an ammeter and multiply? Anyway, it would be an interesting test. Would any additional power used even be
  3. Bug description: If a fucntion is called with arguements of two or more other functions that return a value, the same value is used for all parameters. Steps to reproduce: unsigned char MyFunctionOne() { ........... return 2; } unsigned char MyFunctionTwo() { return 17; } void TwoParameterFunction(unsigned char one, unsigned char two) { ....... any code } void main() { TwoParameterFunction(MyFunctionOne(), MyFunctionTwo()); //instead of TwoParameterFunction(2,17); what happens is //TwoparameterFunction(2,2); /* //the fix usigned char tmp; tmp = My
