CASLPro (Palm) Make Errors
Compile A Simple App
The WeatherCalc sample app is a good test app. (installed
to the \Program Files\CASL43\Samples folder by default).
If this project compiles, there's nothing wrong with your
installation. The Introduction to CASL tutorial,
covers the steps
necessary to open, compile and install an existing CASL program
in Chapter 3, Step #5. This tutorial is available on
GCC and PRC Tools installed OK?
First step in debugging CASLpro errors: - Were all the
steps at the
GCC Install Page (or
GCC Verwendung) followed? -
Was the sdk-3.1 directory renamed to SDK? - If running
Windows 2000 or Windows NT were the quotes removed from the
PATH statement in the c_build.bat file? Make sure you
installed the PRC Tools and GCC files to your boot drive
only. Some users have had problems when installed to other
Activate DOS Window
There's a Tools | IDE Settings menu option in CASLide. Go
to this dialog box and check the option, "Show C Build
window". This will show you the DOS windows, rather than
hide. This will give you a real-time view of c_build compile
Confirm the registry is setup
Using regedit go to: My Computer\HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Palm
Computing\PRC-Tools\2.0 The PalmDevPath value should be "C:\PalmDev"
or where ever your PalmDev directory is. The Prc-ToolsPath
should be "C:\Program Files\PRC-Tools" or where ever your
PRC-Tools directory is located. Let me know if this solves
your problems. Please be very careful when using regedit, if
you change the wrong values it could effect Windows causing
a reinstall of the operating system. You should not have any
problems if you only change these values.

This error usually means that you do not have the CASLpro
version of the compiler installed. When you upgraded to
CASLpro you should have been sent a new version of the
CASL_C.exe file. If you do not have this file send your name
and license number to firstname.lastname@example.org and request a new
copy of it. If you still have problems let me know.

This error means that the CASL compiler could not find
the SDK. Make sure you renamed the sdk-5 folder to sdk.
Make sure the SDK directory is located at c:/Palmdev/SDK.
Also check your registry settings.

This is a problem we recently found in CASLpro. There is
a limit to the size of memory that is allocated for constant
and object definations. For large CASLpro apps with a lot of
objects and constants defined you will get this error. For
now the only workaround is to remove some constants and or
objects or break your program into smaller programs that
call each other with the launch command. I am sorry for this
inconvience we are working hard to fix it. The Maximum
number of CASL objects is around 640.
CASLpro databases will not
Go to the Project menu and select PRC settings. If you
have the Database Creator ID check box check the your app is
using the creator ID of your program and you need to create
a conduit for this creator ID to have it synced. Read the
CASLpro.txt file in the C_Build directory of your CASL
installation for more details on how to do this. If you do
not have this check box checked then your databases will be
synced with the CASL conduit, however you will need to have
the CASL runtime installed on your Palm so it will sync. If
you still have questions let me know.
