Re: User commands in menubar

We were planning to add a new menu item 'Open file location ...' to allow you to launch Windows Explorer in the folder which contains the current file. However, now we have a user-customisable Tools menu, that feature no longer needs to be hard-coded. The Tools.ini file that you can use to define yo...

Re: User commands in menubar

We are now actively working on this enhancement. The design allows for context-sensitive parameters e.g. %FilePath%, %FileDir%, %FileName%, %FileRoot% which can be substituted with values corresponding to the file currently showing in the editor. For example, something like: %FilePath% = D:\AstrobeM...

Re: Vector table in FLASH

I can understand the confusion but be aware that Pascal and Component Pascal are as different as C and C#.

Component Pascal is the language we use in association with C# to develop the Astrobe IDE and compiler.

Re: Vector table in FLASH

Would you be interested in a proposed 'Developer Edition' of Astrobe? It would be equivalent to a Professional Edition with the addition of: a) A source code licence for the Astrobe command-line linker. b) A single-user Professional Edition licence for CPIde - the tool we used to develop the linker....

Re: Vector table in FLASH

The vector table currently occupies 256 bytes of RAM. How close is your application to exceeding the available RAM? How do you you propose you would initialise the vector table if it was in FLASH? All entries are currently populated with address 1 at load time. This will cause a reset for any except...

Re: Vector table in FLASH

I don't think so. The trap handlers are assigned in the library module Traps. They trap locations need to be in RAM for this to work as is. Why would you want to keep them in FLASH?

Re: BIT WISE AND/OR operation

Because all of the parameters are integers I have discovered just by writing the test program that it is easy to make mistakes when using these procedures. If they are not used in the correct order ... On second thoughts it is better to make UBFX a function rather than a procedure. The correspondin...

Re: BIT WISE AND/OR operation

Because all of the parameters are integers I have discovered just by writing the test program that it is easy to make mistakes when using these procedures. If they are not used in the correct order the resulting problems can be tricky to diagnose. If performance is not a crucial issue then it is wis...

Re: DRAM Tester

The Sage was still failing intermittently so I have now added a couple more tests (Walking Zero and Walking One) to detect if any of the address lines are faulty. This adds about 20 seconds to each test but it was worth it as it identified a further eight faulty DRAM chips. The updated source code m...
