Re: Default Variable Assignment

Sorry for my question, but I am just trying to understand how does the new compiler deal with variable assignments now for example the code below that was declared at the start of the prog without any assignment?. Dim x As Byte If the variable "x" has not been initialised, the compiler used to show ...

Re: Using I2C to scan for devices

Bit 0 of the address is the RD_WRN bit, so I only use the even numbered "addresses". (I can't recall ever seeing a "read-only" device). If the slave is present, it will ACK its address byte, so no other data needs to be sent. Besides, you never know what you might be doing there. I also add a littl...

Re: Default Variable Assignment

This is a great addition to the compiler, It will save having to search through the code to find the default values..

Thank you for adding this David. :D

Using I2C to scan for devices

Hey guys, I have been trying to make a simple sub to read all the connected addresses on a I2C bus, the following routine works, but sometimes I get strange results on a serial monitor (as in the bus thinks there's 127 addresses on it?, when there's not), now I don't know if the sub is fully correct...

Re: USB HID Bootloader v1.4.3 over memory

I'll have to take another look at that code and see if there's anything that can be trimmed down. I remember doing a lot of that already, but I might be able to squeeze a few more bytes out of it. I could probably do something with the sections that allow programming of the CONFIG and IDLOC section...

Re: USB HID Bootloader v1.4.3 over memory

Can you live without the status led in the bootloader? Sure, and yes that has lowered the program byte output, thank you Jerry. Your other option would be to use USBSystem.bas from v1.4.3 for the bootloader Yes I see the difference switching between USBSystem.bas v1.4.3, and USBSystem.bas v1.4.4 A ...

Re: PicKit4 as a programmer in IDE

I should have also read the documentation 'IPECMD.htm'! :lol: I also see you can use the PicKit3 too with the same command line and parameters, makes the command line a very versatile tool. I was also wondering how the PicKit set the correct target voltage, and I think I'm right in saying that the c...

Re: PicKit4 as a programmer in IDE

Thanks for you're suggestion Jerry. I have been using the following parameters, but no that doesn't seem to keep the command window open.

-TPPK4-OB-W-M-OL-P$target-device$-F$hex-filename$

That's why I wasn't sure if something relating to windows is stopping it or some compatibility issue?.
