interrupt vector

interrupt vector

interrupt vector

I don't mean to be a nucence!
I realize that the last question about interrupts is impossible, after a little reading up on interrupts.
This one, i hope, should be possible. How would i go about finding the interrupt vector inside the interrupt handler.
The handler is going to be calling functions handling data in multiple structures based on IRQ's and to save space i need only one set of these functions handled by multiple interrupts. Any help is apprectiated.

RE: interrupt vector

You can't, not reliably anyway.

Since you're doing IRQ's you CAN ask the PIC what IRQ's he's still handling... but if he's handling multiple IRQ's at the same time, it can be difficult to say WHICH IRQ got you called.  While it's likely to work that way, I wouldn't trust my program to run reliably on that.

What you do is to set several dummy int handlers:

IRQ01handler proc
   mov  IRQnum,01
   jump realIRQhandler
IRQ01handler endp

IRQ02handler proc
   mov  IRQnum,02
   jump realIRQhandler
IRQ02handler endp

IRQ03handler proc
   mov  IRQnum,03
   jump realIRQhandler
IRQ03handler endp

realIRQhandler proc
   mov esi, IRQnum
   ;do whatever....
realIRQhandler endp

...and of course set each dummy handler to the proper interrupt vector.

RE: interrupt vector

that will work and i think i can retain it in the class structure.
my next move was going to be write duplicate header files w/ each member named diferently like a_... or b_... . which would have consumed memory, time, processor, etc.
thank you
