C51: Problems with #pragma ASM
Information in this article applies to:
We're having trouble using the pragma directive to introduce assembly code in the middle of a C program. We put '#pragma ASM' to begin assembly code and '#pragma ENDASM' to exit assembly code, but the compiler gave us an error:
'asm/endasm' requires src-control to be active
This error message displays when the SRC directive is not included when using in-line assembly.
Specify the SRC directive on the command line whenever you use the #pragma asm/endasm directives.
The SRC directive instructs the C compiler to generate a .SRC file which contains the assembly code generated from your C code. Once you have the .SRC file, you use the assembler to assemble it into an .OBJ file.
If your project does not include any C files that are compiled into OBJ files by the C compiler, you must manually include the proper library files in the project.
If your project does include at least one C file that is compiled into an OBJ file by the C compiler, the linker automatically includes the correct libraries.
