Comm Fault using pcbug11 for MicroCore-11

Started by senglee88 October 4, 2004
Hello everyone,

I own a MicroCore-11 (from Technological Arts).I am currently using
PCBug11 to download my .s19 program using RS232 straight cable (DB9,
Trx(pin 3), RX(pin2), Gnd(pin5)) to the micoCore-11 connector J2.

When I open the Pcbug11, the MS-DOS prompt an error msg:
Runtime error 200:
The code segment cannot be greater than or equal to 64K.
How do I resolve this problem?

When I open using Pcbug11a(before opening this program, I had
terminated the TSRs as mention by the readme file), the program
prompt three comm faults:
comm fault: Register read terminated
comm fault: Register write terminated
comm fault: Memory read t/out terminated
What I can do to resolve the problem?

But when I use Xload, I am able to download my program to the
MicroCore. This shows that the connection and COM port has no
problem. Is there any settings for the Pcbug11?

Please help me because I could not even take the first step into the
programming because of these problems. Thank you everyone :)

God Bless All !!!




This sounds likes the classic fast CPU/Borland Pascal problem. From what I heard, the Borland Pascal library has a routine that attempts to measure CPU speed. It fails badly on a fast CPU reporting runtime-error 200. There were a slew of programs that had this problem that surfaced some time ago (about 5 years) when 200 MHz Pentium III's started appearing.

Unfortunately, unless the holder of the source code is willing to recompile it, there is nothing that can be done, short of running the software on a slower PC.

Best regards,

This was explored, He is not willing!!

However, there is a simple patch available and pre-patched versions of
PCBUG11 are / (or at least were) availble at certain user sites.

But, why bother?? Go to http://freespace.virgin.net/john.beatty/index.html

and download the latest version of John Beatty's free Jbug11 which does it
right in the first place and is a currently supported product.

Also, if you do, be sure to join the Jbug11 email list at YaHoo.com.
