Attached is a project I've been working on for the past week. It's a Propeller object and a companion Windows PC program that allows Propeller programs to read and write CSV files on the PC. The PC program acts as a server for the Propeller program, running as a client via a serial connection (using FullDuplexSerial). With this facility, a Propeller program can create, append to, and read from CSV files on the PC, using strings, integer, fixed-point, and floating-point data. For safety, the files must all be rooted in a named subdirectory of any file device's root directory and not the root directory itself, but the Propeller program can create any number of subdirectories of that directory. (If you happen to choose "c:/Windows/system32" or somesuch, the consequences are your own fault. I bear no responsibility for stupidity. :)
Here's a screen capture of the server program in action:
There are only two things to specify: the active directory and the serial port. Once these are specified, the enable button can be pressed and file transfers can begin. Pressing the Enable button will reset the Propeller, so you will need to have your program saved in EEPROM to use this system.
Documentation for the Propeller client object is embedded in the source code and is AutoDoc (Gold Standard) compatible. See this link for access to the AutoDoc facility:
The demo program exercises most of the client's features, and you should read over it, run it, and understand what's going on before writing your own programs.
Questions and comments, as always, are welcome!
Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world theyve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. Its an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. Its a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing. Muhammad Ali
