EasyC and the 8.2/8.3 Volt Bug

There has been a lot of discussion about the 8.2/8.3 battery voltage bug (which leads to memory corruption and hardware shutdown) in the 2006 RC. Does anyone know if this is an issue with the EasyC programmed robots? Has the problem been addressed with the current WPLib and EasyC updates? This is the fix that is being suggested right now:

Obviously, this isn’t doable with EasyC, but if the WPLib has it covered then we should be ok.

The latest update of easyC, posted last week (see the forum sticky for downloading information) contains a fix for the 8.2/8.3 Volt Battery Bug. This fix is the last entry contained in the upgrade information text document available on the ftp along with easyC.

The second issue addressed in that PDF regarded programs whose maximum size exceeds 64k. This should not be an issue in easyC and was not extensively tested, as it is exceptionally difficult to create meaningful programs in easyC greater than 45-50k large. This is because the vast majority of the size in any easyC project lies in the code generated by easyC in the background. If anyone has problems with programs of this size (that isn’t related to becoming lost and confused with your code!), please let us know.

Thanks for the clarification Chris! :slight_smile: Now I only have 876 other things to worry about :eek:
