Microcontroller Programming » asm macro error

I wrote a program that should create an square wave using an assembly macro (just to see how it worked), using the asm keyword in C. I am using 64 "NOPs" at 16MHz. It works just fine, but if I call several times the same macro I get the following error:

/tmp/ccQo9mux.o: In function main': /home/luis/project.c:103: relocation truncated to fit: R_AVR_7_PCREL againstno symbol' make: *** [project.hex] Error 1

What does this mean?

This is the code I am using:

           PORTB &= ~(1<<PB3);
           PORTB |= (1<<PB3);
           PORTB &= ~(1<<PB3);

//Delay macro definitions...

asm(".MACRO Delay4" ".rept 64" "NOP" ".endr" ".ENDM");

asm(".MACRO Delay8" ".rept 128" "NOP" ".endr" ".ENDM");

asm(".MACRO Delay16" ".rept 256" "NOP" ".endr" ".ENDM");

This code works just fine, but if I call the macro more times, I get that error. I am not using jmp or rjmp to go back to the macro, I just call it.

Thank you

You are getting this because you are using a macro, not a function.
