Fixed RAM positions
Post Posted: Tue Feb 11, 2020 9:14 pm
Hi there!

It's been a while since I used WLA-DX so I'm a little rusty. I'm using a library (GSLib as it happens) that wants me to define a location in RAM to store its variables. I'd ideally like to use ramsections for dynamic placement, so I've tried the following:

.ramsection "gslib" slot 2
    gslib   .DSB 263
.ends

; Required by lib
.define GSL_RAM gslib

This however gives me an 'Unresolved reference to "gslib"' error. Is there a way to get the above working and if not would there be a way to give it a static value while preventing other ramsections from utilising that space?

Thanks!

You should remove the dot before DSB else it won't allocate space.

Did you try just calling the ramsection entry GSL_RAM?
