C compiler user guide

Postby orob » Mon Jan 05, 2009 2:11 pm

The c compiler guide included with psoc designer is for the older, now less encouraged, compiler from imagecraft. Will hi-tech be putting one out to detail their less than stellar error codes?

HI-TECH also installs a PDF copy of their compiler manual in the \Program Files\HI-TECH Software\HCPSOC\PRO\x.xx\docs directory. The manual is also available as a menu pick from the HI-TECH Software folder on the Program menu.

True there is sufficient documentation, but if the Hi-Tech is the now default compiler, I think it should be available from the help-documentation menu in psoc designer rather than the older one.

I have found that I had become rather reliant on the imagecraft memory usage output compiler message. When the code overwrote used memory space, it was easy to see. The Hi-tech compiler states the total percentage used, and if any overwrites occur, it doesn't pick it up. I bounce between compilers to double check code usage and to sometimes better describe and find errors the other compiler may not show.
