EA3 object-file size limit?

Recommended Posts

While trying to load object files with EA3, I found that an object file larger than 5254 (>1486) bytes will fail with "Error 3."  An file of 5254 bytes will load normally.

 

After disassembling the TI LOADER code, I did not find any indication of a file-size limitation.

 

I found this using TI994w, most recent version.  Have not tried it in a real TI, yet.

 

K-R.

My fbForth 1.0 object file is 44 KiB and it loads just fine in Classic99 and on real iron, though I distribute it as a compressed object file of ~20 KiB to conserve space. I have not tried TI994w in a long time. I will try it ere long and get back to you.

Thanks for checking, good to know that big files will load on the real thing, if nothing else.  I have some new hardware to install in that computer (my Win98 machine), after which I'm going to reload everything.
