I tried to compile the AN135 file flowmeter.bas with Bascom-AVR 1.11.7.7 and it fails to create a .hex and .bin file.
In the report file there is the warning:

Code:

 --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  Warnings:
  --------------------------------------------------------------------------------
  HWSTACK                          not used
  SWSTACK                          not used
  FRAME                            not used
  ADCD                             not used
  DATE$                            not used
  TIME$                            not used

  Source string could be too big to fit into target string  in line  79
  Source string could be too big to fit into target string  in line  82
  Source string could be too big to fit into target string  in line  93
 


Can anybody tell me how to fix this?
I tried to change the stacks but with no result.

Hi,
I wrote the AN135, and it is working well Wink , I hope, because my friend is still alive ! Wink
the warning you saw are very common in basic-bascom but it is only warning not a error.
the variable tank is dimensionnsed as :
Dim Tank As String * 8
and use as:
Tank = Format(tank , "00.0") : only with 4 byte.

this apply is working with an ATMEGA8, at 8MHz, a LCD 2 lines is added.

If you have some trouble again, send me a mail please
Bon courage
JP

Thank you for your reply.
Compiling the .bas file still doesn't create a .bin and .hex file.
Other .bas files were compiled fine in the same directory, so there is nothing wrong with any of the settings.
Maybe it has something to do with the fact that I use the demoversion?
How many kB is the .bin file you get? In the report file it is stated that it would be 2862 byte. This is not bigger than the 4kB which the demo version can produce. So from this point of view it would not be the origin of the problem.

Yes... this is your problem. The current demo verson (although it says it compiles 4K code) will only compile code size of 2K or less. The program you are attempting to compile results in a 4K bin / 10K hex file.

The BASCOM-AVR DEMO 1.11.7.7 generates 2KB and not the 4KB.

See this post how to fix that:
http://www.grote.net/bascom/frm23958.html

You can download the file bascavr.exe ( DEMO 1.11.7.8 ) from:
www.mcselec.com/download/avr/11178/bascavride.zip

Just rename the original bascavr.exe file (1.11.7.7) to
bascavr_7.exe and put the new bascavr.exe (from the zip file)
in the program folder. When you run the program you will get
a warning about incompatible dll, but you can ignore it.

Best regards,

Luciano

Yes, it works. I downloaded the new 1.11.8 bascavr.exe and now a .bin (nearly 3kB) and .hex (nearly 8kB) is created. Very Happy

Thanks for your help.

Where did you find a 1.11.8 update? I just checked with auto update and there's nothing newer then the 1.11.7.7 I have installed.

Does that mean that the commercial version lacks behind the free demo? Not good!
Same applies to some patches which are needed to run 7.7 but have never been added to the updates.

Weird to say the least.

The 1.11.7.8 demo is the same as the commercial 1.11.7.7

The 1.11.7.7 demo has a little bug with the size of the generated hex file
In the .8 version this is fixed.
