$INC

Top  Previous  Next

Action

Includes a binary file in the program at the current position.

 

 

Syntax

$INC label , size | nosize , "file"

 

 

Remarks

Label

The name of the label you can use to refer to the data.

Nosize

Specify either nosize or size. When you use size, the size of the data will be included. This way you know how many bytes you can retrieve.

File

Name of the file which must be included.

 

Use RESTORE to get a pointer to the data. And use READ, to read in the data.

 

The $INC statement is an alternative for the DATA statement.

While DATA works ok for little data, it is harder to use on large sets of data.

Example

$regfile = "m48def.dat"

$crystal = 4000000

$baud = 19200

Config Com1 = Dummy , Synchrone = 0 , Parity = None , Stopbits = 1 , Databits = 8 , Clockpol = 0

 

Dim Size As Word , W As Word , B As Byte

 

Restore L1                                                 ' set pointer to label

Read Size                                                   ' get size of the data

 

Print Size ; " bytes stored at label L1"

For W = 1 To Size

Read B : Print Chr(b);

Next

 

End

 

'include some data here

$inc L1 , Size , "c:\test.bas"
