Re: Error on "Jump Around" Statements

OK, I did not look hard enough, and will remove the other jumpAround's The compiler is a single pass compiler so it does not know whether there is a MAIN or not. It does allow a GOTO as the first statement in a program, but if there is a SUB /FUNCTION before that, that GOTO would never be executed s...

Re: Error on "Jump Around" Statements

Thank you for isolating and explaining the issue. The compiler now flags as an error, code that would not be executed, which in this case is the GOTO Jumparound in the libraries. A better fix is to remove those GOTO's, which I will do in the 3 libraries I see them in. The compiler also now flags a p...

Re: Help getting started - my project goals

While Olzeke has been able to duplicate this (after many attempts) I have not been able to.

I put a couple changes to attempt to force choices away from root directory or program directory.

Seems to me, if you run any of the examples (from the Tools menu), the error would go away.

Re: Help getting started - my project goals

What editor are you trying to run? Is it in the "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)" directory or somewhere else? What version of windows? I recently changed editors myself (not a big change), but from the 32 bit version to the 64 bit version of Notepad++. I did have some issues trying to get th...

Re: Help getting started - my project goals

PS there is a getting started section in the Help files, that gets you to a "Hello World" program, and also wiggling a pin.

Re: Help getting started - my project goals

Well the help manual is really a language reference, though the hardware sections introduce some of the simple interfaces, like pin IO, serial IO, timers. BASICtools has a pulldown menu Tools has a number of examples including blinky, timers, interrupts, even multi-tasking. The BASIC itself follows ...

Re: Multi-tasking

You can always turn off the task switch interrupt, if you want to stop the other processes.

I have not tried it, but variable dumps will probably work in the STOP

Re: web based clock

I had to revisit the clock recently. One day the ESP8266 died after about a year in service. I figured that might be normal, so I replaced it and the new one failed a couple weeks later. So it was time to do some investigation. Turns out my 3.3V supply had failed and was supplying nearly 5V to the E...
