GPS error in flowcode

Postby JohnCrow » Sat Jan 08, 2011 9:35 am

When I try to run a simple flowcode simulation using the GPS macro, I get the following error message
Error in <SimMacroCall2>

Im trying to read Lat/long from the gps

I realise it is not possible to actually simulate GPS in flowcode, but I would expect the simulation to give a default reading.

Also it is not possible to cancel the error, I have to close flowcode.
However the program works when loaded into a pic.
1 in 10 people understand binary, the other one doesn't !

This is a known problem with the GPS macros that return a "float" value. The best workaround I can suggest if you wish to simulate these programs is to put a breakpoint onto the float-returning macros. This way, the error messages will not appear constantly and you will get the opportunity to stop the simulation.
