i'm performing programs for lpc2378 with arm7TDMI , and i'm using timer0 interrupt
my IDE is keil microvision4

here is my code

#include <LPC23xx.H>
#include <stdio.h>

void isr_T0()__attribute__((interrupt("irq")))
FIO2SET |= 0x3;
VICVectAddr0 = 0 ;
T0IR = 0x1 ;

void init_T0()

T0TCR = 0;
T0MR0 = 1500 ;
T0MCR = 0x3 ;
FIO2DIR = 0x3 ;
VICIntEnable = 0x00000010 ;

VICVectAddr4 = (int)isr_T0 ;

void main()
init_T0() ;
T0TCR = 0x1 ;

while(1) {}

as you can notice i'm trying to set P2.0 and P2.1 , thing that never happens while simulating
i don't know anymore about this trouble , which makes me mad because it does'nt let me step foreward
if someone knows anymore about the probleme , please answer me

keil follows a different coding style than ARM-GCC

so you have to write
void isr_T0()__attribute__((interrupt("irq")))


void isr_T0() __irq

and try again. i doubt why you did not get any error when building.

i've tried both :
void ir_T0()__irq and void isr_T0__attribute__((interrupt'"irq")))
while debugging i've ckecked up in periphrals the state of all registers ,
for every time , the case (interrupt on MR0) is ticked , and T0IR took OXO1
but the leds 'P2.0 , p2.1' are never set to 1
so i'm asking my self a lot of questions , what am i doing ????
i can't really see a true interrupt , so i can't go foreward !!!
so if you know anymore about my trouble , pleae tell me

thank you in advance

well you forgot to configure those pins as o/p

do it by setting direction on FIO2DIR.

FIO2DIR |= 0x03;

i've already set pins as output by writing : FIO2DIR = 0x3 ; or even
FIO2DIR |= 0x03 ;
still the same trouble !!!
is it because i'm using an evaluation softaware downloaded from KEIL.com ??
other request have you ever written a programme including interrupts in which you saw your routine performing what did you tell it to do ??
if yes , can you give me this exemple ??

and thank you for helping me

here is a small example for toggling P2.0

#include <LPC23xx.H>
#define INT_TMR0	4

void T0ISR() __irq {
	T0IR = 0x01;

	if(FIO2PIN & 0x01){
		FIO2CLR |= 0x1;
	} else
		FIO2SET |= 0x01;

	VICVectAddr = 0;

static void InitTimer(void){
	T0TCR = 0x02;
	T0MR0 = 0x1000;
	T0MCR = 0x03;
	VICVectAddr4 = (unsigned long)T0ISR;
	VICVectPriority4 = 0;
	VICIntEnable = 1 << INT_TMR0;

	T0TCR = 0x01;

int main (){
	FIO2DIR = 0x01;

even in this exemple , it doesn'e enter the isr at all
i've tried to initialise FIO2PIN |= 0x1 but without any success
i've looked into the step by step mode when debugging
may be i could find out what's the matter
and by following the arrow which indicate which part of the program is being executed , i've seen that it didn't move to isr at all so i guessed there is a problem somewhere
here is all suppositions that i've tried :
*)enabling first and then giving the adress to the interrupt vector (VICVectAddr)
*)looping just with the function init_TIMER() , because timer initialisations don't change and all the action is performed by the isr
i mean it's enabled , setting pin , disabled (loop )
*)i've notices that the case of "interrupt on MR0" is always ticked and T0IR always takes one

for conclusion i think that my programme is not correctly built and there is some detail that i can't find out and which making me just turning around

other thing i would like to thank you for helping me !!

of course if you got a solution please tell me

The code i posted is checked and working..

if you are using a simulator you can simply put a breakpoint and see for yourself.

I am really not sure what exactly are you doing when testing the code i provided. Timer is configured for interrupt and reset on match, which is working fine.

which IDE do you use
concerning me i'm using KEIL microvision 4 "evaluation software", downloaded from keil.com
did you try your programme on your software and did it work ??

i have always LINUX ubuntu , and i know that we can work with arm-gcc
but i dont' know if we can simulate to see the result

may be i should use another IDE just to be sure that i'm not loosing my time

thank you in advance

I wrote this code for Keil uVision 4. I am attaching complete project here for your reference. check it.

also adding a screenshot from debug.
