    Come on Dave! You've used the compiler since 2004, so you know I am definately not a one for code bloat in what the compiler produces. It actually produces tighter code that all other compilers, even...

    Re: Code error

    The Min and Max functions were removed from the compiler many years ago, because they were interfering internally with it, and it was more robust to remove them than to try and tamper too much with...

    Re: Help with implementing sin

    The Sin function works in Radians, so the value placed into it needs to be converted from degrees to radians. For example, the procedures below will do the trick with triginometry:

    As Bob stated, a really good idea to use the transfer on the component side of the board as well. I'll have to try that one day.

    Re: 16f753 DAC

    Look at the block of code:

    Repeat
    OSCCONbits_HTS = 1 ' Wait for oscillator stability
    Until

    It has no comparison in the Until directive, so it will form an infinite loop.
