MCF5213 trouble getting started

Contributor I
I am using the M5213EVB with codewarrior and the C stationary.

I am getting a problem when trying to use interrupts. Here is what I am doing:

1. Make interrupt function preceded with __interrupt__ keyword. It is a PIT interrupt, it looks like this

__interrupt__ void my_pit0_irq(void)
{//vector 64+55=119, source =55
MCF_PIT0_PCSR = (108)||(13)||1;
MCF_PIT0_PMR = 0xffff;
MCF_GPIO_PORTAN ^= 0xff; //flip last 4 bits

2. In main function, I add these lines of code for interrupt:

MCF_PIT0_PCSR = (68)||(13)||1;
//2^10 prescaler, enable irq, enable module

MCF_INTC_ICR55 = (33)||(3);
MCF_INTC_IMRH = ~(123); //enable irq 55

3. In vectors.s I change this-

vector119: .long asm_exception_handler

to this-

vector119: .long my_pit0_irq

The reason I changed vector 119 is because the pit0 irq is number 55 and 55+64=119.
When I compile this, I get error!

error- unknown identifier in vectors.s!!

The identifier is the EXACT SAME as my interrupt function!!!!! How can this happen? I am very frustrated with freescale right now. I have used many products and have never had such an issue getting an interrupt to work!

it also seems as if you may be writing your code incorrectly. your 'ors' should be '|' rather than '||', as the latter is a boolean careful with those, as you are assigning a 1 to many things!

Yes, || is a careless error. I have made this work with the set_handle function and not touching the assembly file.

The file 'vectors.s' is an assembler file, so it knows nothing about the interrupt handler in your C code.

You need to add the following declaration to the start of vectors.s:

.extern _my_pit0_irq

Note that there is a leading underscore '_' character there. This is because the C compiler always adds an underscore to the name of any C function; to get the assembler to match, you need to add the underscore explicitly.

Hope this helps
