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!
A wise man knows that he can be sure of nothing. The pessimist assumes that nothing is worthwhile.
An optimist assumes that everything will turn out well in the end. Fools think they know everything.
None of them are likely to succeed.
