Re: interested in new device support?

I'm not aware of problems with my email.

However, do what Jerry suggests. #

PM me on this board and include your Swordfish registration number. I can then get the latest compiler build to you...

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

You will see an *.idf file if you have COFF enabled. For example:

myProgram.bas

will generate

myProgram.idf

in the same folder as your *.bas file

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

It's located in the same folder as your main program *.bas file. Ensure that:

View...Compile and Program Options
"Generate debugger COFF file"

is enabled

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

The priority is:

(1) folder that contains the main program you are compiling

then

(2) swordfish user library

then

(3) swordfish standard library

it has always been like that - no changes have been made to include lookup priorities

Re: UMC Build Error

You will need to install a version of MPLAB (it's still available from the microchip site to download). The builder will not work with MPLABX.

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

You have described the correct behaviour for an install > c:\users\g\documents\swordfish\userlibrary still did not exist An operating system may have multiple accounts. So when the application is first run it creates a unique copy of certain directories to ensure that if any changes are made by an i...

Re: Problem with the path to the Library folder

You could try enabling "VIEW...EDITOR OPTIONS" -> "Display Full Filename in Application Title Bar" to see where any file is located.

Re: Forum zip files

I think it's something along the lines of what bitfogav was saying. Maybe it was to do with the move to phpBB3 - I really don't know. Assuming for a moment it is. And the files are stored as ascii and not binary, you may have a very small chance of converting ascii to binary with some utility *provi...

Re: Forum zip files

The change over to phpBB3 happened much earlier. I think 2014. Certainly your idea of a FTP transfer that incorrectly auto detected ASCII rather than binary would fit *but* I haven't touched the files directory at all using any kind of FTP process.

Re: Forum zip files

I do not know what has happened. phpBB stores attachments under a directory called "files". It seems that a number of these files have become corrupted. My rolling backup only goes back to May 2020. When I try and restore from then, the files are still damaged. I have no idea what has caused this. I...

Re: Default Variable Assignment

When I originally designed Swordfish, the aim was to be as "familiar" to some other basics - where you didn't need an explicit procedure "main" entry point - like PROTON or PICBASIC. In hindsight, I agree with you. Having an explicit entry point would have made things a lot easier. Particularly with...

Re: problems with wiki access??

I've tried the site today using geopeeker and geotargetly. The site appears to render correctly in USA and other countries (except Singapore, who are blocked because of SPAM).

Maybe a temporary issue?

Re: problems with wiki access??

This is really strange. The forum is hosted on the same server as the wiki. I'm proxied through cloudflare. Maybe that's an issue? It seems ok in UK but not in USA.

Can anyone else confirm working / not working against their location? Thanks.

I'll look into it more tomorrow...
