Problem allocating some memory

Hi Chaps,
Can anyone tell me what this means? It happens in AsmPro v1.14 when i try to get the assembler to run a Check Only on my code:

>AC
Pass 1..
** Word at Odd Address
52 gfxbas: dc.l 0
>

Have I done something stupid like try to get an even number of bytes into an odd-numbered location or something?

That just means that label gfxbas is at an odd address which is not allowed. Let me guess, right before the label you have the "graphics.library" string or something similar? Anyway, just place CNOP 0,2 before that label, this will align the label properly and the error will be gone.

LOL. You'll soon learn that Sting has a finely tuned sense of what the bug might be in code.

I had a problem with a scroller once - Sting immediately suggested a corrupted sine pointer and that turned out to be the problem.

I also had a really strange problem with my vectors that Sting immediately suggested might be an issue with the line draw code and guess where the problem was...

Sting == the Yoda of asm!

Or place 'cnop 0,2' (or 'even') after your strings (looks better ).

You can also put your strings after everything else in your source code, or even in their own section, and you'll never have that problem again, without using cnop or even.
