I'm wondering if anyone has any insight into using .db and/or .byte for strings. In short, I feel like I've tried every permutation and combination of these, read over some docs, and I just can't get them to work quite as I'm expecting. Has anyone got any experience with this? Please see the screenshot that's attached. I even tried .dc8, which I stumbled across after making the screenshot; it seems to behave the same way .byte does. Removing the dot ahead of the directive causes the assembler to not recognize it which (naturally) produces an error.
I've read over this: http://ftp.iar.se/WWWfiles/avr/w...
...and this: http://www.atmel.com/webdoc/avra...
...and I just haven't been able to sort this out. I need to embed a string in the FLASH that the application refers to. It's absolutely possible I've overlooked another document somewhere or am misinterpreting something.
I'll admit, I'm relatively new to AVRs (only been at this for not quite three months now) but am a seasoned vet with assembly language on a number of other architectures. I just can't seem to work out this issue with the assembler here. :)
