|#190378 - How to init a variable in ROM|
I am using AT89S52.
The program Length is about 1k.
I need to program the ID of the product.
This ID is to be displayed by the product after Power ON.
I want to give the freedom to my customer to program this ID, But I do NOT want to give the source code. Instead, I will be giving him the HEX file. My customer knows how to download the HEX file into the CPU. I will give him the address of the unused location such as 0xff0, and tell him to program this location with the ID when downloading the program into the CPU.
I have used the following: to read memory location 0xff0:
unsigned char code *Ptr=0xFF0; ID=*Ptr;
This is working fine, no problem.
The problem is:
Whenever I compile the code, this location is initialized to 0xff. I need to initialize this memory location (with a default ID) whenever I compile the source code.
How to initialize an unused ROM location in C?
