Re: Maker Faire

Ah thanks for the heads up Tod. I got it working!

I dug in my spare parts box and found the header. I will go ahead and solder
the pins in then I can just push the jumper on when programming etc.

Cheers,
Shane

Re: Maker Faire

> According to the documentation it appears that I need to install a two pin jumper [C Jumper]. Is this correct? I have a two pin but no jumper block. Is it a big deal if I go solder this on? I.E what functionality do I stand to loose? Hey Shane. Congrats on the purchase. Welcome to the group. Bruce...

From the look on the package, it contains a mini USB connector but now that i've opened it, it seems that I was mistaken. Just curious on how to wire it up to get sta...

Re: Strings and 0

> Is there a way for user-code to know how long an arbitrary string has been dimmed to? Due to my discovery of this 'feature' tonight, I want to add a small lib sub to CLR_STR(BYREF STRING_VAR AS STRING). The feature is by design as STRING and BYTE ARRAY use the same definition. String operations ar...

Re: Strings and 0

Bruce, Is there a way for user-code to know how long an arbitrary string has been dimmed to? Due to my discovery of this 'feature' tonight, I want to add a small lib sub to CLR_STR(BYREF STRING_VAR AS STRING). My concern is that I don't know how to programmatically arrive at the dimmed length of the...

Re: Strings and 0

If you are using a string variable for storage of byte data for whatever reason, be advised that issuing a blah="" does NOT clear the entire string's contents, but rather just sets blah(0)=$00. This may have been covered herein already, or in the docs, but I got bit by it tonight. Again, just sharin...

Re: Mac OS C support

I could install Windows on my system and boot to it or run Parallels but that is what I was trying to avoid. From what I've heard so far and from my poking around on other sites there does not seem to be a good shareware program for ARM 7 development on the OS X. Not a big surprise. I think I'll bac...

What about running windows or linux in the Virtual Tool under OSX?

Re: Mac OS C support

But OSX is Unix, BSD flavor to be exact, so it should work. Even these guys said so almost 2 years ago. http://coding.derkeiler.com/Archive/Tcl/comp.lang.tcl/2006-12/msg00471.html I would be VERY surprised that if it did not work. Unless your Tcl is very old, please tell me you aren't still on 7.5x?...
