Tutorial: Pointers in ROBOTC


Hurray, ROBOTC has support for pointers!  “That’s nice,” I hear you say, “but what are they?”  That’s a good question.  I’ll try to explain in this tutorial.  This tutorial is the first of a couple that will show you the kinds of things you’ll be able to do with pointers. Standard varables Up until now, ROBOTC only supported normal variables; ... Read More »

Please insert token: strtok() for ROBOTC


I’ve been very busy working on a completely revised driver for the Dexter Industries DWiFi and I needed a clean way to tokenise a string that had a single character as a separator.  ROBOTC didn’t seem to have a strtok() which is what you’d use if you were using gcc or some other standard C compiler.  So I made my ...

Download ROBOTC Driver Suite 3.2


A new Driver Suite is here for your installing pleasure.  The NXT2WIFI is pretty much done as far as I am concerned.  I may add some nice wrappers for sending Tweets and that sort of thing but maybe someone else can do that and I’ll add the code to the Suite.  I need some people to test the Dexter Industries ...

Mindsensors GlideWheel-AS, Worth its Weight in Salt


I wanted to come up with a fun project for the new Mindsensors GlideWheel-AS Angle Sensor.  I wracked my brain as to what I could make that would be fun and not something obvious.  Maybe it was my man-flu/Ebola induced fever, but I came up with an idea: a weighing scale, one of those old fashioned pendulum letter scales. It’s ... Read More »

Released: ROBOTC Driver Suite V3.1


There’s a new instalment of the Driver Suite.  It’s still a bit of a work in progress at the moment, with regards to the RS485 stuff.  I’m busy overhauling the RS485 code in the Dexter Industries dWifi and NXTBees, so for now, I would advise you to use temporary ones that John posted here: [LINK]. IMPORTANT NOTICE(S)! The NXT2WIFI driver ... Read More »

Released: ROBOTC Driver Suite V3.0 Final


It’s finally here, a little overdue, but I had a really good excuse, I was at a robotics event on Saturday and I was fixing some last minute bugs!  Better to be late than buggy, right?  That’s not saying there are no bugs in this release, of course. IMPORTANT NOTICE(S)! The NXT2WIFI driver is a bit funky at the moment.  ... Read More »

Released: ROBOTC Driver Suite V3.0 beta 1


It’s here, folks!  After what seems like an eternity, at least to me, I proudly present the first beta of the ROBOTC Driver Suite V3.0.  The reason it’s beta is because I have not had a chance to test all of the drivers.  I will continue to test more as I release new betas but I also count on you, ...

Coming soon: ROBOTC Driver Suite V3.0 beta 1


Since the release of ROBOTC 3.50, I’ve been working hard on porting my current Driver Suite to the new function prototypes that came along with the introduction of pointers. Apart from the obvious changes to make it compile under ROBOTC 3.50, I have also finally made the move to rename all the files and drivers to a more sensible naming ... Read More »
