Documentation, broken link

basically miscellaneous, if it doesn't fit another sub-forum enter it here, we might even promote it to its own sub-forum

Lloyd - you saw those when you "hovered" over Products -- like the picture I submitted
Here is the code - I don't see any mention in the "floating compiler" block for any of the the other
and when I go to http://www.coridium.us/mbed.php I don't see all of them

Nope... I only saw those when I hovered over "compilers".

I agree that clicking on compilers only takes to to the MBED version, but when Bruce asked you if you got the list when you hovered over "compilers", you answered emphatically "NO". Now, it seems like you're saying you do get them.

The click link needs to be fixed, but once you've uncovered the floating list of compilers, clicking on any one of those does, in fact, take you to the specific one you're investigating.

Yes, there's still a linkage problem, but let's at least describe it accurately.

No - I don't see a list of compilers
the code snippet only uses the word "compilers' with no mention of any others,
my first picture is what I see - the dark red indicates a 'hover'

When I hover over Compilers

I will add a Compiler list page like the hardware, but didn't think I really needed it with the hover.

Just updated to Chrome ....71

I see the picture above when I hover over Compilers as above.

Don't you see the same kind of thing when you hover over the other 3 product menu pulldowns? It is the same type of code.

Looks like we are b oth on ...71 - but I don't have the little arrors in the floating menu like you do.
I'm pretty sure I have javascript on -- the Armweb pages seemed okay.
I'll check my other settings - I lean towards 'less is more secure'.

UPDATEmy Chromebook shows the sub-sub-menu for the compilers !!!! bad XP sp2 ........

on the mbed.php page (for the 1768 & 1114) compilers
in the write up on the left column there is a reference to:
Library routines for I2C, SPI, LCD and one-wire devices are available.
the "available" link takes you to the 'Forum' -- I did look at about a 40% search on the word 'library'
and could only find the AB_Math library basic file.
AM I missing something? wrong search term -- ? search on RTC.bas didn't bring up the library
only a reference to it.
I know - nit-picker -- OR am I keeping you honest??

A number of libraries are installed with BASICtools, discussion of their use happens in the forum. So I think it is nit picking, though I know some have requested tutorials, which we are not good at. We build a range of tools from LPC812 to LPC4330 which is very wide, far wider than the hobbyist community needs, but our main business is consulting and we leverage the Arduino shields to get a head start on doing software for custom products.

Because of that wide range we don't focus on a single product. The advantage is that we are offering state of the art microprocessor solutions aimed at the engineering community, but usable by more advanced hobbyists. That shows up in performance numbers, where our solutions are orders of magnitude faster or cheaper than most single product vendors or the many vendors that just toss hardware out there and expect the users groups to build the software base.

After clearing my history and cache a second time,
I now get the sub-menu for compilers
