Nios II freezes when printing double values/ does not print float values

Hi there, 

 

I´m using the MAX10 Eval Board with a 10M08SAE144C8GES FPGA and an Nios II/f processor. 

 

But when i try to print a float value the JTAG output just skips the value. 

I´m using the Hallo_world_Small template: 

# include <stdio.h># include "system.h"# include "sys/types.h"# include "altera_nios_custom_instr_floating_point_2.h" 

 

 

int main ( void ) { 

 

__uint64_t PI = 3.1415926535; 

 

if(PI > 3.141592653) printf ("True\n"); 

 

printf("PI: %f" ,PI); 

printf("Hello_World\n"); 

printf("Sizeof(PI) %d",sizeof(PI)); 

printf("Goodbye\n"); 

 

printf("\n"); 

 

 

OUTPUT: 

 

PI: Hello_World 

Sizeof(PI) 

 

Seems that the processor freezes. 

 

 

Any ideas on that? 

 

 

Thank you very much!

Is your Nios CPU compiled with the floating point custom instructions? If not you need to use software emulation. I think there is a compiler flag for it. 

Second, __uint64_t sounds more like a integer type, and using it with a %f in printf may lead to undefined behaviour.
