We want to create a C166 program with come functions in NCODE and other functions in FCODE. Is there a way to do this?

We've tried declaring functions with the NEAR and FAR keywords and that doesn't do it. All functions are placed in NCODE (in SMALL model) or FCODE (in MEDIUM model).


In C166 if a function is defined as "far", that means that it can be called as a far object. However the Memory Class (NCODE, FCODE etc.) of the function itself depends on the memory model.

Therefore, it is not possible to do what you want (NCODE and FCODE within a single project).
