thank you very much for your answers.

Of course I meant 'volatile' - until now I used it very rarely -
my fault.

Hmm - I think this would be a very nice enhancement, because
it could reduce the code size *and* the execution time.
I hope it will have a little bit influence on the further development,
if I liked that this feature should be on the 'wishlist...' ;-)
When I think about it, I imagine that this could be something for
the optimizer (independently of 'const')?

Thanks again Uz for your support and your compiler. I will
bribe you with a little present soon...
