basically miscellaneous, if it doesn't fit another sub-forum enter it here, we might even promote it to its own sub-forum

Looking at (possibly) using the MRT on '812 as a type of timeclock.
the INTERRUPT SUB help page makes this reference --
There are example programs for interrupts in the \Program Files (x86)\Coridium\BASIClib\Interrupts directory .
has this been deleted, or being updated??
in the meantime I will study the examples on the help page
and look at AMDLloyd's recent example that he shared
TIA - Olzkeke51

They have been moved to /Program Files (x86)/Coridium/Examples

and are also installed in the users Documents/Coridium/Examples directory where they are writable without being an Administrator.

and there is a shortcut to them in the BASICtools Tools->Examples menu

It looks like the SLEEP command has/had two documents in the help file
Currently in my testing of the Datalogger RTC [it's working, though the calibration seems off]
I wanted some long SLEEP times for an overnight test
from the index at the bottom of the main help page - WAIT was selected
it has a "See also" link to SLEEP that allows you to specify seconds [without parenthesis!!]
a second SLEEP can be found by using the index at the bottom of the main help page
and it talks about a WFI routine.
I am using ARMbasic 935.a, with Basictools 5.40 and getting an error when I try to
specify a 'seconds' value to the SLEEP command
has SLEEP seconds been deprecated/obsoleted?

from the first post in this chain last year !!!

ARMBasic help
search tab -- 'wait' / display the 'WAIT' / the See also link for SLEEP is broken, TIMER is okay
*
BTW there is no SLEEP in the "Alphabetical KEYWORD" under the Contents tab / "The Language"
nor the Index tab
*
the PDF documentation -- I did a search on "sleep" after not finding it in the "alphabetical KEYWORDs page
and on the 'END' page the See Also link for SLEEP takes me to the SELECT (CASE) page !!!!
SLEEP is listed on the more comprehensive "Index" page

From the SLEEP entry linked in the index or Alphabetical keywords page--

Added to version 8.20 of the ARMbasic compiler. The RTC.bas library had a SUBroutine named SLEEP that has been renamed IDLE.

--The SLEEP page you found was deleted long ago, but a copy remained on the website. I have removed the link from the WAIT page, replacing it with a new entry for IDLE.

Re: Documentation, LIST command

Post by olzeke51 » Mon Jul 29, 2019 1:54 pm

Progress has given us a more refined BasicTools IDE.
In the process - documentation is hard to keep up with...
.
The LIST command makes reference to the "Save As" option on the File Menu.
It is no longer there/available - just the 'copy & paste' method to save the
user entered program.
.
WHEN you are in the documentation mode, you may want to update the
information for LIST.
.
Another pair of eyes !! :shock:

We rely on the many eyes looking over our shoulder at the documentation. So keep us honest and keep letting us know about broken links, misspelling, bad grammar, or wrong info.

thanks in advance.
