Remember that pgm_read_byte() is a *macro* and not a function. And to top it
off, that macro generates inline assembly. You have a very complex expression
in the parameter portion of the macro.
I strongly suggest that you take out the expression and assign it to another
variable, and just use that variable in place of the pgem_read_byte()
paramater. As a precaution, take out the call to pgm_read_byte() from the if
address = (TESTIMAGE + (IMAGE_SIZE * projnum) + SIGNATURE);
byte = pgm_read_byte(address);
if (byte != 0)
See if that helps.
