Using MCU 8051 in Multisim 14.2 - linker error

 

The compiler may still require the const access modifier, in that case the declarations should be like these:

 

rom const int i_arr[4][4] = {{0,1,1,1},{1,0,1,1},{1,1,0,1},{1,1,1,0}};

 

rom const char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

 

rom const char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

Can you post the error message(s) when I suggested using const and code declaration modifiers (refer to one of my previous replies)? If the error(s) involve i_arr only, you can try using const or/and code declaration modifiers in c_arr and error only:

 


const char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

 

const char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

 

 

or

 

code char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

 

code char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

 

 

or

 

code const char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

 

code const char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

Hi

I've tried all the variations and it seems to still give the two linker errors.

 

See the results below:

 

 

const char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

const char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

The error messages are important, the modifications that we try are based on these messages. The code and/or const declaration modifiers may give us hope to successfully build this code. Try relocating the declarations of c_arr and error between #include <htc.h> and function declarations. Again, try the three variants I mentioned in my previous reply:

 

 

 

#include <htc.h>

 

code const char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

code const char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

 

/******Function declaration******/

 

 

 

or

 

 

#include <htc.h>

 

code char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

code char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

 

/******Function declaration******/

 

 

 

or

 

 

#include <htc.h>

 

const char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}};

const char error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'};

 

/******Function declaration******/

 

 

 

You don't have to delete the original declarations inside main(), simply comment them out:

 

 

void main()
{

/* char c_arr[4][4] = {{'7','4','1','o'},{'8','5','2','0'},{'9','6','3','='},{'+','-','*','/'}}, error[10]={'M','A','T','H',' ','E','R','R','O','R'}; */

}

 

 

 

Post any changes in error messages, if they are too long you can opt to attach them as file instead of inline text.
