    When are you going to update demos.zip to reflect the change in GETADDR command?

    Some more info about about error problem thought to be related to file name. Files that wouldn't compile I been able to make compile by:

    1. Saving the pbas file in another new directory that didn't contain the generated Spin file on compiler error.

    2. The second file I got to work showed the same errors as the screenshot above, but the real error was I had a missing ENDIF. The error message never showed that.

    I don't know if these items would be considered bugs or not. Also, any thoughts on why saving pbas files to new directory allows the files to compile and not in the old directory? I even tried erasing the Spin files generated by failed compile and that didn't help.

    Thanks,
    Tony

    ··· OWWRITE DQPin, $44CC\16

    works, but

    ··· OWWRITE DQPin, $44\8
    ··· OWWRITE DQPin, $CC\8

    doesn't.

    Have you tried it?· Maybe ther is something wrong with my setup.· I've got a 1K resistor between pin 16 and the DS18B20 and a 4.7K pull up resistor between the external 5V supply and the DS18B20.

    Need a drawing?

    Hank,
    · In the command "OWWRITE DQPin, $44CC\16" the $CC is sent first (because MSB is always sent first), then $44 is sent.

    · Maybe that is the problem ???

    P.S.· The 1K resistor may be causing problems. Just run the DS18B20 from 3.3V and eliminate the 1K (keep the 4.7K pullup to 3.3V).

    P.P.S. You're not trying to use parasitic power are you ?

    Hmmm...that could be.· So I should send $BE,$46,$00,$00,$02,$7C,$B1,$D5,$28,$55?

    Ok...I can do that.· I'm running it off 5V because everything that I will be interfacing to likes 5V but I can take it out for testing.· Johnny Mac's Spin program works fine and it looks like he's sending $55...$BE.

     CON
      MATCH_ROM  = $55
      RD_SPAD    = $BE
     
    ow.reset

    Hank,
    If you send byte at a time, then you send it in the forward order. For example to send $01, $02, $03, $04 byte at a time you would send $01, $02, $03, $04.
    But if you sent the sequence using words you would send $0201, then $0403.

    I hope that makes sense.

    Bean.

    Ok...so do you want the good news or the bad news?

    First...the·bad news.

    I took out the 1K resistor and powered the DS18B20 from 3.3V.· It didn't work.

    Now, the good news.

    It works.

    I modified Bean's DS18B20 demo to send te two bytes in the correct order when I switched from sending a word to sending a byte.· That worked.

    I tossed in a·term.hex(byte[noparse][[/noparse]snpntr+idx], 2)·to Johnny Mac's modified DS1822 demo program to dump the SN as he wrote it to the 1-wire bus.· It turns out that it doesn't go out to the 1-wire bus as 46, 00, 00, 02, 7C, B1, D5, 28 but as 28,· D5,·B1, 7C, 02, 00, 00, 46.· I changed Bean's DS18B20 demo to send the bytes in he correct order and that worked.

    So...I switches back to using the 1K resistor and powering the DS18B20 with 5V and that works.

    This works:
        OWRESET DQPin
        OWWRITE DQPin, $55\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $28\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $D5\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $B1\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $7C\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $02\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $00\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $00\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $46\8
        OWWRITE DQPin, $BE\8  ' SkipROM($CC) & Read Scratch($BE)
    
    

    Everything is good.

    On another note...I've ordered one of these:

    50836-09320-1-300.jpg
    and one of these:

    21400-Parallax4x20BL-27979-L-300.jpg
    and can now move forward with my development.

    Thanks to everyone, especially Bean and Johnny Mack for kicking me in the right direction.· I really appreciate the fact that everyone was so gentle with me given that I'm new to the forum and was clearly spinning.· I'm really enjoying the Propeller and PropBASIC and am really keen to get my projects moving forward.

    I glad you got it working.

    P.S. You shouldn't need the "\8" in the OWWRITE lines because 8 bits is the default.

    I have written parsers in the past and I know it's a pill...but...it would be super awesome if you could extend the OWWrite at some point to allow multiple variables on the same line.· I know how to make it work now and I know I'm being lazy but that's just the way I roll.

    The "\8" tells OWWRITE to write 8 bits.· Bean pointed out that it wasn't necessary given that the command defaults to writing 8 bits.· I included it because the original command was OWWRITE DQPin, $BE55\16 and when I split it up I added a "\8" to each line.

    So I'll stickwith my BS2P24 enough horsepower, and the display and stuff is done in VB2008.. works like a charm.

    Because I need lots of graphics, it is the PROP that does not have enough mem to push to more than one display(maximum setting).
    So, with a Notebook Acer One Aspire, and a USB Monitor, I will have enough display to get it all going.

    That display, will it be for the PROP? or the PC side...

    It is going to be driven by the Propeller (if we can make it work.)· We only need character display for what we are doing.· Eventually adding graphics may be good but for now we don't need it.

    My first crack at it will be with the monochrome 4x20 LCD and the Blackberry trackball with 4 directions and click.· I'm going to use the LEDs under the trackball to indicate status (green is good, red is bad, flashing red is very bad sort of thing.)

    I used a cube of ice to test my ds18b20. Did not go as low and as fast!
    What I like about them is , they react really fast. from an ice cube to a hot coffee cup, was about 10 secs or so (not timed).

    So, they are really sensitive to changes and fast too...

    1-Wire can be very persnickety, which is why I tend to shy away from it most of the time. That said, when you need a temperature sensor and a unique serial number in a device using 1-Wire is very convenient.

    I finally found the "sweet spot" with 1-Wire vis-a-vis PropBASIC. I've attached a "work" file that demonstrates how to read the serial # from a DS1822 and then send it back to read from that device. What you want to avoid is using more than one "big" PropBASIC command in a program as each is converted to assembly inline and consumes precious cog space. My demo wraps all of the 1-Wire commands into subs/funcs so they only compile once, and I've added OW_READ_SN and OW_WRITE_SN to read and write serial numbers from the buss.

    Now that this seems to be working well I will move the 1-Wire routines to a library.

    I just downloaded the ZIP -- those files are included. I keep my .PBAS and .LIB files in the same folder and PropBASIC-BST.exe; you might give that a try.

    Hi Jonny.
    I copied delays.lib/pst_serial.lib/ow_work_v2.pbas to PropBasic-bst-00.00.99-67's folder. (there is PropBasic-bst.exe inside folder)
    Opened BST-window.
    I opend PropBasic-bst-00.00.99-67's folder, but I cannot see lib-file on list.

    I understand now. Bean and I collectively decided on ".lib" but it may not be supported by BST (for display in the file pane, that is) -- you'll have to talk to Brad about that. You can open the files by using the Open dialog and then putting *.lib in the file filter.

    It's not. I'll add *.lib to the *.pbas settings for the next release.
    <edit> If you select the (*.*) option in the file selector it should work anyway right now.
