Four quick questions:
The size of the *.hex file of my compiled easyC Pro program for my VEX robot is 62KB. The size is larger than 32KB and the robot seems to run OK. If I am looking in the incorrect place for the size of my program … where should I look?
If I go over the VEX MCU program size limit … how do I know? Does the robot not work? Does the robot work unpredictably? Other?
I have been told that code comments do not compile and therefore do not effect the size to the final compiled code. Is this true?
Finally, does the compiler for the high end MPLAB software optimize code better than easyC and therefore create smaller compiled programs? Also, does the MPLAB software have a debugger where I can step through my code line by line?
