Watchdog Timer

Postby mikeworkman » Mon May 06, 2013 2:12 am

From what I can tell the simulator doesn't support the Watchdog timer, is that correct? :?:

I have #include<avr/wdt.h>, and then use watchdog_enable(WDT0_8S> and the simulator returns "Unknown command".....

Hi Mike, we had a quick look at this.

To use the file <avr/wdt.h>, select Options > Avr/File.h include. Then click the reset button or F2 and watch what happens.

First there is an error __AVR_ARCH__ not defined (we can fix this), and the stdint library is not found. Click Skip all to skip past these errors. There are ten library files now included.

The wdt_enable() function is now available but runs over several lines so the Simulator has trouble with interpreting this. We will look into this shortly. Using library files can be very complicated and this is a work in progress.

EDIT: just added __AVR_ARCH__ = 100 and __AVR_ENHANCED__ = 0

Return to “Version 0.98”
