Hi A colleague of mine is using MPLAB C compiler and is struggling with the saving of registers in ISRs. Apparently the compiler manual says you have to manually scan the assembler code generated by the compiler to work out what registers to save/restore in interrupt routines. His software is crashing and he appears to be struggling to solve the problem. Does anyone have any exper...

Can anyone advise please? I written a simple prog for an 18F1320 using an RC network (62K+100pF) giving an fosc of approx 100KHz. I've flashed a device and the program runs perfectly with the correct fosc/4 (25KHz) waveform on RA6/OSC2. Now, if I replace the 18F1320 with a MPLAB ICE2000, PCM18XJO and DVA18XP180 and execute from within MPLAB IDE (V7.31), RA6/OSC2 has a frequency of appr...

a) CONFIG/CBLOCK directive: I don't know what these directives do b) retfie dt; this is a Pic18 instruction. But, mplab uses only "retfie". Is it equivalent to "retfie 0"? If I comment these directive, then my files are compiled. But, the hex files are not same. Also, mplab generated hex files are not in previous (pic16fx) format. The header is in previous format. But, the body is bro...
