I realized I did not know anything about the RST instruction. Is it kind of special CALL instruction ? Does it have to be used only when dealing with interrupts ? etc. Thanks to pulkomandy who had to dig deeply around it while working on its Caprice Reloaded project, he was able to give me some precise details about it. I found our conversation so interesting that I finally decided to make a dedicated article about it. You can read the article here (also added in Articles section).
Octoate sent me words about the updated project template he did for Code::Blocks IDE (which is a free and powerful source-code editor). Sample project allows to compile SDCC Tutorial Part 3 ("Hello World"). An archive is provided with step-by-step description.
Update includes the following :
- added SDCC2Pasmo v1.3
- changed project settings (filename can be set in project properties)
- changed post-build options to use the filename of the project properties
- added pre- and post-build batch files to execute own commands before and after the build process (e.g. for compressing files and adding files to a DSK file)
- added ManageDSK with example in post-build batch file which creates a new DSK image which contains all .BIN files from the bin/Release directory
You can get more information about this update here. Many thanks to you Octoate !

For years, I used poor memory design scheme with my programs to adress the extended 64Kb of RAM - it was time to learn more about other available options. This article will let programmers understand the benefits of using &C1, &C2 and&C3 modes of the Gate Array. You can read it here (also added in Articles section).
