ADS 1.1 Compiler reports "Fatal error: Internal fault: 0xca5f"

Applies to: ARM Developer Suite (ADS)


This problem is caused by the C compiler trying to cast a one-char structure to a one-word structure (int), for example:

typedef struct { char x; } X;
typedef union { int y; X x; } Y;
void f(Y *p, X q) { p->x = q; }

This is fixed in ADS 1.2 . If you have ADS 1.1 you can download a compiler patch (build 723) from the ADS 1.1 Support Downloads pages. Note this patch is not compatible with the Evaluation version of ADS 1.1.
