    Re: Symbol not previously defined i_PPS_FN_RX2

    I will need some code from you to see where the anomaly is caused.

    I have an idea where it is, but I need to make sure before implementing a correction for an update.

    Re: IDE on MAC running Parallels

    Maybe one day, I'll see if I can get a lend of a MAC and try to make the compiler compatible with it. But the prices of MACs is absolutely stupid!

    This thread opened up a good conversation.

    It's just a shame that we are not all sitting in a Pub together having the conversation with a pint. LOL

    Re: Preview of updated Proton Compiler Manual

    You're such a lovely fella Lee.

    It makes me very proud of what I have created in the language when there are so many good people using it.

    Re: Cread Word unexpected results

    You cannot use the compiler's Cread commands for that type of code memory reading because the compiler splits 16-bit values into 2 bytes and the Cread commands know this and manipulate themselves for...

    Re: Other ports use for interrupt

    A has been stated above, the interrupt on change is extremely useful. Once the interrupt has fired, the interrupt handler can detect which pin it was, of the four, that caused the interrupt.
