#190658 - re simulation 'mistakes'
Responding to: Jim Granville's previous message
Simulation does not, by itself, cause any mistakes,
let's take on that has been seen several times "The simulator says my UART code is good" since the simulator (at least as fas as I hve seen) do not care about baudrates or pin configurations, it will declare a malfunctioning UART good if e.g. the RX pin is configured as push-pull ot the baudrate is off the mark.

you can argue whether declaring something good that, in real life is not, is a 'mistake' but this and much other similar stuff show the weakness of simulation.
