Re: ASSERT & Error.Mod (version 8.0)

You are not missing anything - it is one of those unfortunate 'backward compatibility' issues. I'll make a note to document it in the Astrobe for RISC5 Oberon Programming Guide. The 2008 Oberon Language Report that Wirth's Oberon SA (StrongArm) compiler conformed to, defined an optional second param...

Re: Creating Boot Files for EO with Astrobe for RISC5

A big thank you to gray for documenting this process. Creating a new boot file for Embedded Oberon has now got a whole lot easier with the new Link command in v8.0 Astrobe for RISC5. The new process is this: 1. Update the core modules (FileDir, Kernel, Files and Modules) with your changes as require...

Re: Programming STM32 through SWD

Yes - you can program the STM32F746 through the SWD interface directly from the Astrobe IDE using the ST-LINK CLI. This was the sort of capability that we had in mind when we designed the user-configurable Tools menu. Edit your AstrobeM3-v7.2\Configs\Tools.ini file and add the following lines or som...

Re: Self-unloading With Modules.Free?

Free should be used with great care and only when necessary. A situation where it is necessary and generally OK is when you are in the process of developing a new module and want to test it after making changes and recompiling. In that case you should have a good understanding of how the module work...

Re: Project Oberon Workstation on Digilent Nexys 4 Rev B

Great! I'm pleased to hear that you have got it working. I'll add a note to the installation instructions to point out that the folder structure should be maintained when unzipping the Verilog files. We deliberately use the same folder structure as the official Project Oberon release. Is that why yo...
