I'm having trouble with this code:


int counter = 0;
int good    = 0x2A;

ISR(TIMER0_OVF_vect) { ++counter; }

int bit_slice (int x) {
    return (x & 0x3C);
    // these don't work either....
    // return (x & 0x7E);
    // return (x & 0x3E);
}   

bool truth (int x) 
{ 
    return (bit_slice(counter) == good); 
}

It's like the counter is not even updating.

The truth is not good no matter how I slice it.

  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected

Make the counter volatile and it shouldn't the problem. Variables used in ISRs that are also used elsewhere must be declared volatile.
