Are there any limitations to the number of timers / interrupts I can have on my mini ?

I've currently got 2 interrupt ports both calling the same event handler, together with a timer which work as expected. As soon as I add a second timer, and deploy to the mini it comes up with a memory error ???

I've added a call to debug.print(debug.gc(true)) in my first timer and it comes back with the figure 85000, what does that actually mean ??

Hi Andrew,


What function call gives you the OutOfMemoryException?  [And is that the exact Exception you're seeing?]


P.S. The # of bytes returned from Debug.GC(book) is the amount of RAM left for your application.  It may not all be contiguous (i.e. there may be things pinned which restrict you from creating a giant 64KB block of data) and you should leave some RAM for temporary objects, but there is technically that much RAM (83KB) available.
