    Hi all,

    i am not familiar with the #define. I am trying to understand an exaple how to use define, but i dont quite get it, can you guys help me plese. Here is the example:

    /*
    * Define words for adress loockup table (16bit addresses)
    */
    #define GS_CWC1_DRA_WP1 0
    #define GS_CWC1_DRA_WP2 1
    #define GS_CWC1_DRA_WP3 2
    #define GS_CWC1_DRA_WP4 3
    #define GS_CWC1_DRA_WP5 4
    #define GS_CWC2_DRA_WP1 5
    #define GS_CWC2_DRA_WP2 6
    #define GS_CWC2_DRA_WP3 7
    #define GS_CWC2_DRA_WP4 8
    #define GS_CWC2_DRA_WP5 9

    /*
    * Define words for adress loockup table (byte addresses) - The last used base is 31
    */

    #define GS_GS_OF_BS 0
    #define GS_GS_S_BC 1
    #define GS_MA_FC_BS 2
    #define GS_MA_MF_BC 3
    #define GS_RTE_TRC_BC 4
    #define GS_RTE_UHYS_BC 5
    #define GS_RTHF_MA_BC 6
    #define GS_RTPK_MA_BC 7
    #define M11_I1_B_BS 8
    #define M11_I2_B_BS 9

    /*
    * Define bit address and byte address used for Coil MODbus communication definition
    *
    */
    #define aMM_AI1_CV_BS 0 //nvvar->MainModule.AnalogInput1.bb_var.all
    #define aMM_AI1_EA_BC aMM_AI1_CV_BS +1
    #define aMM_AI2_CV_BS aMM_AI1_TA_WP +1
    #define aMM_AI2_EA_BC aMM_AI2_CV_BS +1
    #define aMM_AO1_CS_BC aMM_NTC5_TELA_WP +2
    #define aMM_I1_A_BS aMM_AI2_TB_WP +1
    #define aMM_I2_A_BS aMM_I1_TSW_WP +1
    #define aMM_I3_A_BS aMM_I2_TSW_WP +1

    Thanks for your time and help.
    Best regards,
    BoSCHoW.

    #define is a preprocessor statement. These operations are performed BEFORE the file is submitted to the compiler. In the case of a statement such as
    Code:
    #define THISTHING THATTHING
    
    the token, THISTHING, is replaced in the text, everywhere it occurs, with THATTHING.

    You had the thread in the wrong section or I must say not in the Right section. I have moved the thread from programming to C-C++ forum.
