though I don't see the relation to the second URL you gave
(probably because I'm ignorant concerning your context),
I remember it well.
It's silly: since I'm under some time pressure, I didn't take the time to scan
Which in this case would have helped to solve my problem a little quicker...
But behind that issue is another one, which bothers me for a while now:
VisualDSP has widely improved, and I benefit of that, because the compiler does
a far better job now.
However, all the changes in the IDDE led to different situations, where such
silly things happen,
just because I get lost between the lots of dialog boxes and tab sheets where
options can be set up.
I had been sure that I did enable the warning about missing prototypes, since I
always work with most warnings enabled.
Usually that's the better way for me than hunting behind avoidable bugs, even
if it means that I must take some detour to get the toolchain satisfied.
Obviously I was completely ignorant about that false setup.
I guess it happened bc. I set up a new project, instead of copying as I most
That's a thing which hasn't improved during the latest changes of VisualDSP
(maybe even got worse...).
IMHO the correct way to implement such features would be to enable all such
warnings by default,
so that the unaware user (like me) always gets the security net activated. Bernhard

You are true in the sense that time after time more
and more dialogs appear for option configuration.
Specifically, the IDDE was almost the same between
VDSP++ 2.0 and VDSP++ 3.0, as for VDSP++ 3.5, many,
many more options (checkbxes) appeared.
Personally I prefer this than having to deal manually
(or via scripts) with command line options.
Let's hope that ADI guys be aware of this, and don't
make the IDDE as crowded as the development "Studio"
of another DSP vendor whose name I prefer to omit.

That could be called "best-practices"? Anyway, that
can help a lot, as in your case.

Have you suggested that to ADI? What about
cross-posting this to comp.dsp, to make some sort of
survey about what other users say?
