***Moderator Note:

This post is from user Ketho, and it was initially corrupted in some bizzare way. With Mr. Pilgrim's help, the post was recovered.

Please respond to Ketho (not me) should you have any input to the situation.

Thanks much!



I'm experiencing the same problem as in the other two (sticky) threads. I didn't want to necro them, and the forums seem .. quite peaceful.
Sadly I didn't really understand what was being described in the other threads, and hope someone is still willingly to summarize or explain it in layman's terms. At school we have the (USB) Boe-Bot, and I want to program it with the Javelin Stamp IDE. However the Javelin Terminal won't "respond" to any input from Terminal.getChar()
I tried some of the solutions in the other threads, including updating to Peter Verkaik's Terminal.java‎, or the Javelin_usbtest.exe, but I didn't get any wiser from it.
  • Do I have to update any of the Javelin Stamp files?
  • Do I still have to solder anything? Although I don't think I'm allowed to do something like that.
This is my test code
import stamp.core.*;

public class TestTerminal
{
        public static void main()
        {
                System.out.println("Hello World!");
                while (true)
                {
                        System.out.print("test ");
                        System.out.println(Terminal.getChar());
                }
        }
}

And this is a picture of my Board of Education Boe-Bot. (I don't know what Rev or model it is)

I'm a student that has to do a Navigate in a Maze assignment, and it would be a great help if I could use the Javelin Terminal for debugging.
Well-written documentation requires no explanation.

    Hi Ketho,

    the Javelin forum is not just ... quiet.... It's almost dead ;)

    I'm still using almost only Javelin controllers at home because they are very easy to use.

    So, for your issue below. I have no idea where it's coming from, but I figured many times on my code that Javelin don't like while (true) loops. Don't ask me why.

    So maybe you can try something like that:
    import stamp.core.*;
    
    public class TestTerminal
    {
            public static void main()
            {
                    System.out.println("Hello World!");
                    int i = 0;
                    while (i == 0)
                    {
                            System.out.print("test ");
                            System.out.println(Terminal.getChar());
                    }
            }
    }
    

    Also, I can't see you attachment so I don't now what this code is doing on your side. Can you please repost them?

    Thanks,

    JM

    Hey JM, thanks for there being a response ^^
    I thought I had already reposted the attachments, and was assuming I just needed to wait for it to get approved by the moderators

    I will try to post them again now, but .. forgot to also make a screenshot of my (unresponsive) Javelin Terminal though, I suppose that one would describe it way better

    I can't test out your code until next monday or tuesday ><
