Tooltip hints added

We have released versions of BASICtools, MakeItC and TclTerm with tooltip hints. We publish the TclTk source for our IDE tools, and one of our users is taking advantage of this to build an IDE system the way he likes it. One of the things added was a popup hint or tooltip when you place the mouse ov...

Re: DIY WiFi Programmable Thermostat

And here is the temperature recording program. Rather than 0 it now loads the data array with &HFFFFFFFF and erases the next Flash sector when it is required. ' this program captures 2 AD conversions and save the data into unused Flash ' unused flash is &Hffffffff ' on startup it dumps the data -- a...

Re: DIY WiFi Programmable Thermostat

I was also measuring outside temperatures, but between snow and rain, and a bug in the original program, I only captured a couple days of data. The sensor finally died in the last storm. I replaced it and will protect it from the weather better, it is under a covered patio on the lee side of the hou...

Re: DIY WiFi Programmable Thermostat

So lots of data to look at. Over the last 2 1/2 weeks I measured 3 different heating configurations. So below is a set of graphs of the data, with highlights explained after. The top diagram show when heat is being demanded by the thermostats, and the bottom is the relative temperature of the living...

Re: DIY WiFi Programmable Thermostat

Re: DIY WiFi Programmable Thermostat

Well I was trying to infer from the temperature measurements the efficiency of heat and heat loss in the house. Also one of my experiments is to combine 3 zones in the tile area of the house which is an open area, and see if switching them all on with heat demand keeps the house more comfortable and...

Re: 54102_Shared_Memory

2 issues-- yes the current compiler does not recognize *const_val where const_val is defined as a BASIC const -- been fixed here, but not released yet, we tend to use #defines for these types of constants, just the way we do it ------- as for the memory issue, I am not seeing that M4 program print "...

Re: DIY WiFi Programmable Thermostat

Now have them gathering data overnight. Will check tomorrow to see how it went. The program takes temperature samples every 5 minutes, and every hour writes to Flash. When the program starts up it will dump that data to the USB serial port where I will move it into Excel for analysis. Here is the co...
