The PIC18Cxx2 chips contain quite a few nice new features. One of the neatest is programmable access to the stack. This feature allows many powerful tricks.
- this code has _NOT_ been tested!
- all multi-byte values are little-endian
- I assume the code space never exceeds 16 bits worth (which it never will on the 242, 252, 442 or 452 chips).Co-routines/tasks version 2 Allows cocalls from subroutines. Works by allocating parts of the stack space to each coroutine/task. Note: limits the available stack depth for each task. There is no checking if one task overruns anothers stack!
