It's very simple to send data. And the setup instructions for the serial LCD screens make that very clear. I didn't have any trouble with that.
But receiving data is another matter. Do I loop one of the methods to look for incoming data? What do I have to add to the Con section? Inquiring minds want to know.
This is code that everyone and their dog uses (if the dog has a propeller), and yet I can't google up a decent tutorial on how to use it. I wouldn't even know how to send with it, had I not purchased a serial screen years ago.
The simplicity of sending with FDS makes me think it won't be that difficult. Where is this info?
I just want to send a few dozen bytes between propellers. It would be nice if I could also send and receive strings. I saw on a another thread that FDS can't receive strings, so maybe I should look at another object?
As usual, love the hardware, but not the mysterious code that I don't understand. I am not a professional software engineer, and so it isn't easy for me to reverse engineer some one else's code.
I need to be able to send or receive at up to 40k baud, as MIDI runs at at about 31600. The devices need to be MIDI compatible eventually. I am not sure if Spin code is going to be able to handle that. But I have seen some threads where people have run FDS at 300k or faster. But again, can it receive strings?
Thank you in advance for any help!
