MPLAB IDE Error message

Started by farroos April 26, 2003

i can not go resolve this error when I compile my code. I think that
the error accured because of a hidden charachter on that line. I
oppened the source file with 'vi' the unix editor and found no
strange charechters. Please help. Error messages follows:

Deleting intermediary files... done.

It seems like your error comes very early in the .asm file -
specifically line 4. I can duplicate this by just placing a '(' on
the line by itself. But since the closing ')' in your message is on
the following line I wonder if there is a NL in the file that doesn't
have a CR.

You could try deleting the first several lines and starting over. It
also seems you are missing an 'END' statement at line 5.

This seems like a very short file. Why are you using 'vi' instead of
the IDE editor. vi will probably create files with NL's and no CR's
as I believe this is standard for Unix text files. --- In , farroos <no_reply@y...> wrote:
