Failed to read s-file issue.

I been using the USBDM Flash Programmer utility.  Which I like very much*

I have problem that when we convert our firmware bin files to s19 files we get an error.

We;re using the bin2srec.exe utility from here.

http://www.s-record.com/

What I found was when it converts the bin file it adds a type S5 record to the end of the s19 file. And the flash programmer utility barfs on it.

I think the all S5 (and S6) records do is indicate the number of lines in the file. So they probably should be detected and ignored.

PS: I'm planning on creating a USBDM programmer based on the K20 (same as the freedom board) but that fits in a small off the shelf case.

And hopefully put the design on github as an open source project.

Hi Matthew,

Can you provide an example of a converted file with the offending record and I will look at it.

This will save me chasing up things :smileyhappy:

Sorry if I just paste an example in here but this fails to load, if you remove the second to last line (S5030020DC) it works fine

Hi Matthew,

It will be updated to ignore S5 and S6(?) records in the next release.
