Help! We're using MON166 to debug our target program and we are experiencing strange program crashes. The program runs OK in the simulator but not with the monitor.


Make sure you reserve the traps that the monitor uses. If you don't reserve the memory space for these, your program will surely trounce on them and crash the monitor.

The traps used by MON166 are: NMI trap (for breakpoints) and one Serial trap. To reserve these memory areas, specify the following reserve command on the linker command line:

RESERVE ( 08h - 0Bh , 0ACh - 0AFh , 0B8h - 0BBh )
