I feel like a pain...
I am getting an assembler error SYMBOL TRUNCATION. While compiling XB256. I am only using DISPLY so far in this app.
I tried shrinking variable size, but I still get the error. If I remove the DISPLY lines, it compiles in normal XB no errors.
I searched for the error in the docs and in this tread, but didn't get a hit.
You're not being a pain at all! But I don't believe your problem is with DISPLY. I compiled this program and it worked the same in XB and compiled, with no errors and no problems:
3 CALL CLEAR 5 XTR=3 10 CALL LINK("DISPLY",10,1,"EXTRA"):: CALL LINK("DISPLY",11,1,STR$(XTR))
The "SYMBOL TRUNCATION' should be accompanied by a line number. That number refers to the line of the source code created by the compiler, not the line number in the XB program.
Take a look at the source code and you should be able to find out what the XB line number is. (Line 200 compiles to L200) See if you can see a problem in that line. If you can't find it, send me a copy of the XB program and I will have a look.
