#67787 Hi All

I'm getting exception 9 errors, with a stack dump. It's a very simple piece of code, and shouldn't be heavily using resources.
Can someone point me at documentation or resources to help understand what an Exception 9 is exactly, and any root cause guidance.
The only thing I have seen is a vague comment about an unassigned data, but it doesn'y say what unassigned data is!

Thx all

#67805 Hi, and thank you.

I did see some of this before. Exception 9 says unassigned address. Not sure what that is but will keep trying to find out.

This is the dump, any guidance on where to start looking is very welcome... Thank you!

Exception (9):
epc1=0x401010dc epc2=0x00000000 epc3=0x00000000 excvaddr=0x00000003 depc=0x00000000

#67827 OMG it's unaligned, not unassigned one :-( You even read it wrong... ESP8266 has 32 bit CPU so for word access (longint, uint32_t, ...) it needs 4 byte aligned address. Read about this for example here: ... -alignment
... (do a google search about "cpu aligned access")
If You are using Arduino IDE then You can use Exception decoder to get close to the source of problem.
