  • [SOLVED] Excluding variables from being initialized

    Hi,
    I' have to save some variables over a reset, regardless a hard- or softreset.
    Found some suggestions here: Exclude variable from initialization how to use the .non_init section, but I'd like some things to know:
    * Do I always have to edit the "flash_placement.xml" or is this file, specially this section, preset in a new project? Or is there a simple way using the project properties setup in SES?
    * is this section under linker control, i.e. will it grow on demand? (I didn't find something about that)

  • Hello,

    Thank you for your inquiry.
    The default flash_placement.xml should always come with a non.init section. So no need to edit the xml. Just make sure to place your code correctly into that section.

    Yes it is dynamic depending on how many symbols you place there.

    Best regards,
    Nino
