but do not halt processing. In MPLAB C30, warning messages report the source file 
name and line number, but include the text ‘warning:’ to distinguish them from error 
messages.

A timer on a PIC microcontroller that resets the processor after a selectable length of 
time. The WDT is enabled or disabled and set up using Configuration bits.
