Thanks for the reply.
Was from the documentation "sdcc -c test.c"  section 2.7 sdccman.html
char test; 
void main(void) { 

With sdcc -mz80 test.c I get
at 1: error 131: cannot generate code for target 'z80'

Sorry to be a pain but I am struggling with this.

It would be useful to know the actual command that you entered...?

I used something like this when I started off...

sdcc -mz80 test.c

the -mz80 tells sdcc what the target machine CPU is and therefore fairly
essential ;-)
