  1. Bug description: A triple add on unsigned short global variables and function return values fails when compling with -O2 or -Oa Steps to reproduce: In the following code the variable 'a' should be calculated to 4 but it is calculated to 5 instead. If the code is compiled with -O0 or -O1 the result is correct. unsigned short a = 1; unsigned short bar() { return 1; } void main() { // when compiling with -O2 or -Oa // the following line results in 5 instead of 4 a = a + a + a + bar(); } Expected behaviour: The variable 'a' should be calculated to 4. Is the problem 100% re
  2. Bug description: Under certain conditions labels are missing in the .casm file. Steps to reproduce: #include <system.h> unsigned char var; void main() { var = 0; adcon1.0 = var.0; } Expected behaviour: The following is a section of the .casm file. Line 0007 is a jump to label1 which does not exists in the .casm file. In the corresponding .asm file label1 is placed on line 000A. So, the resulting code works but is not readable in the debugger. void main() { var = 0; 0003 1283 BCF STATUS, RP0 0004 1303 BCF STATUS, RP1 0005 01A0 CLRF gbl_var adcon1.0 = v
  3. Thank you very much! Yes you are right there is a problem here, it has been made apparent because this target has some unbanked memory. This is now fixed and will be in the next release. Regards Dave
  4. Compile the code for array length 80 and step though it with the debugger. RP0 is cleared at program start and will never be set before you arrive at BSF gbl_trisb,1 So, portb is accessed with this instruction, not of trisb. BR manuel123 The banks switching is CORRECT in both cases. When the array length is increased, the i variable ends up being placed into memory that appears in all banks, so no banks switching is required to access this variable. Regards Dave
  5. Dave, thanks for the reply. The problem is not the variable i but trisb which is available only in bank 1. There must be a BSF STATUS, RP0 somewhere in the code! Regards Manuel The banks switching is CORRECT in both cases. When the array length is increased, the i variable ends up being placed into memory that appears in all banks, so no banks switching is required to access this variable. Regards Dave
  6. In the HITECH code for the LCD the initialization is different and there is a for-loop after the init. Try doing something similar. Can you operate the PIC at 4MHz as the example code does? void setup(void) { unsigned long x; TRISC = 0xff; PORTC = 0xff; SSPSTAT = 0x80; SSPCON = 0x38; SSPCON2 = 0x00; SSPADD = 10; // SCL = 91khz with 4Mhz Osc for(x=0; x<60000; x++); // wait for LCD03 to initialise } If you have an oscilloscope or a logic analyzer, check if the i2c communication is acknowledged: SDA line should be low (=ack) during 9th clock pulse. If you don't have a scope
  7. The address of register to write to is missing in the code above. Do: main(void) { i2c_init(0x00); i2c_start(); i2c_write(0xc6); i2c_write(0x00); i2c_write('A'); i2c_stop(); }
  8. I recommend the usage of the i2c driver that comes along with the distribution. I assume that you have assembled the external pull-ups on the i2c bus. Here is how to use the i2c interface. Note: I did neither compile nor test the code below and I assumed that the your LCD does not need to be configured. Please check again that the #defines map the register names to the correct addresses of your PIC device. I have this i2c driver running on a different PIC device together with a different i2c LCD. //////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////// // i2c hardw
  9. Hi Paolo, function pointers are supported since v6.70. See http://www.sourceboost.com/CommonDownload/VersionLog.html Limitations: - As far as I know arrays of function pointers are not supported. - It seems that the call tree is not parsed through function pointers. So, function pointers should be used together with a software stack or -very carfully- with the hardware stack. See http://forum.sourceboost.com/index.php?showtopic=3279 BR manuel123
  10. Hi Dave, Pavel, have you taken a look on this issue: "Bug: Bank Switching" "bank switching fails depending on memory usage" http://forum.sourceboost.com/index.php?showtopic=3290 I need to know if it is really a bug and if so, if there is a workaround and when it will be fixed. It really hurts me. BR manuel123
  11. Who ever is interested in the answer: I found it in the meantime Both, the library directory and the library name have to be specified: Settings->Options->Extra linker options ../include/<libaray name>.lib BR manuel123
  12. Hi, besides libc.pic16.lib, I want to use an additional library. In the build options I specified -ld ../include where the additionial library is located. The Linker command line is boostlink.pic.exe /ld <lib dir> libc.pic16.lib <project name>.obj /t PIC16F88 /d <project dir> /p <project name> -ld ..\include -swcs 0 1 but the output is Error: Failed to open:libc.pic16.lib or ..\include/libc.pic16.lib How do I specify the library location correctly? Thanks manuel123
  13. The i2c_driver (\SourceBoost\include\i2c_driver.h) that comes with the SourceBoost distibution provides a code template that has to be copied to the user's program. This template uses "unsigend short" data types where "unsigend char" should be sufficient. Here are the wrong and the correct code: wrong code: // RAM used by the software i2c driver to emulate the equivalent i2c hardware registers unsigned short swi2c_SSPCON1@0x40; // define location for the emulated SSPCON1 unsigned short swi2c_SSPCON2@0x41; // define location for the emulated SSPCON2 unsigned short swi2c_SSPST
  14. Bug description: If the array length is 80 in the following example, bank switching fails. If the array length is 79, bank switching works fine. Steps to reproduce: ----------------------- #include <system.h> unsigned char var[80]@0x20; unsigned char i; void main() { portb.1 = 0; for (i=0; i<2; i++) { if (i==0) trisb.1 = 1; else trisb.1 = 0; } } Expected behaviour: This is the asm code for array length 79 (correct code). The two marked lines are missing when array length is 80. main ; { main ; function begin BCF STATUS, RP0 BC
  15. Bug description: ------------------- The -swcs option does not work correctly together with function pointers. The call tree is not parsed correctly together with function pointers. With "-swcs 0 1" the following code compiles correctly. With"-swcs 2 1" the compiler uses the hardware stack for both, the call to __fptr and the calls of fptr0..4(). This results in a stack overflow during the call of fptr4(). Steps to reproduce: ----------------------- #include <system.h> void (*fptr0)(); void (*fptr1)(); void (*fptr2)(); void (*fptr3)(); void (*fptr4)(); void te
  16. Hi, are function pointers supported in SourceBoost6.60? I tried to compile void func(int arg) { } void main() { void (*fp)(int); fp = func; } but I get "Failure, unexpected program termination!" If I comment out "fp = func;" it compiles fine. Any help? Regards manuel123
  17. Bug description: In the target-specific include-files for the PIC16C84 (the files p16c84.h and pic16c84.h in /SourceBoost/include) that come along with the SourceBoost 6.15 distribution the configuration bit for the power-on timer enable is not specified correctly. The files read: #define _PWRTE_ON 0x3FFF #define _PWRTE_OFF 0x3FF7 The correct specification is: #define _PWRTE_ON 0x3FF7 #define _PWRTE_OFF 0x3FFF This is an issue only with PIC16C84 devices, since the PWRTE bit is inverse to the PIC18F84. Steps to reproduce: Bug appears when compiling to PIC16C84 target (ho
  18. Hi, when will function pointers be supported in BoostC? I have a set of functions and I want to select one of them by index. Is there any workaround without function pointers? Thank you for answering. Manuel
  19. I'm using the C2C-Plus 6.1.1e compiler. When I try to translate the line template <unsigned char P> void my_func( void ) { ... } I get Error: '(' expected Looking closer to the problem, it turns out that the compiler does not understand the key word 'template'. Can anyone help me to get it compiled? Thanks, Manuel
