    Variable passing

    When passing the variable bytes to the loadBytes function, it somehow get the value zero when treated in the stackwrite function. If I set the value bVar to any constant value it's ok.

    Code:
    byte bytes[64];
    bytes[0] = 0xef;
    bytes[1] = 0xcd;
    
    void loadBytes(int addr, int n, byte *bytes) {
    uint16 bVar;
    bVar = (uint16)bytes[0]|((uint16)bytes[1]<<8);
    
     for (j=0; j<1; j++)
        {
          StackWrite(sibleyStack,0, bVar);
        }
    
    }
    
    lodBytes(0, 0, bytes);
    Please help me out here.

    sorry about the misspelled loadBytes in the end (that's not the error though, hehehe)!!

    the last parameter to loadBytes is a pointer, you are passing a single integer (assuming uint16 is typedefed as unsigned int). Didn't your compiler produce an error about that?
