Re: blue toth or wifi ?

I think Bluetooth just comes up as a COM port doesn't it? So serial type RS232 would possibly work. At least thats how I used it with a little microcontroller (PICAXE) and my Android phone.

Re: Squares

Ha Ha. I still lurk occasionally and the above brought a smile to my face. I have been working with National Instruments Labview lately and have paid for the full license. I had a paid customer project to deliver so I could justify the license (very expensive), but the customer specifically wanted a...

Re: Flow Chart Programming

That's why I posted in the beginners forum. Some of us never get past that stage LOL.

Re: Flow Chart Programming

Yes, it is the translation into all the different common languages that I found interesting too. I could compare (almost side by side) the same algorithm implemented into C++ and BASIC and others, thus making the language structure obvious---and I found that apart from the language overhead and synt...

Re: Flow Chart Programming

I have Norton 365 and it got past that OK. Loads and runs fine and I haven't had to pay any bitcoin ransom yet (fingers crossed!)

Re: Flow Chart Programming

I only found it last night so don't know how good it is yet. I have been trying to get some VBA code running in an Excel spreadsheet. VBA is not BASIC so I was struggling a bit. When I found this Flowgorithm tool I could draw up my concept then examine the code in its QBASIC source to see if I had w...

Flow Chart Programming

I just found a nice little tool called Flowgorithm. You can describe your program in flow chart form and it will produce the code as output. The output can be in many different formats including Qbasic. It will also produce C++ code or VBA or Java or Javascript or Python and so on. These options are...

Re: Squares

I have a Transworld 41----also a ketch, and also a beast--but an elegant beast-----certainly built for comfort, not speed. Perhaps we meet up one day----sailing to Tassie is on my list------when I retire it will be south for the summer and north for the winter. I doubt the "great southern ocean...

Re: Squares

Hello Squares------its been a while since I lurked here. I bought a sailboat and it is much more fun than programming--but In still do make the occasional program for work-----mainly to set up a little test station to do electrical calibrations or testing. Anyway, I just downloaded that book "R...

Re: Squares

I have been following, on and off, this discussion and noticed that it does go in 'squares'. Seeing that there are over 5000 posts on here, is there anyone who knows what all has been discussed? The members who probably know most are Albert, Richard and Dodicat. This thread was preceded by one call...

Re: AI magazine article

Are you going to use FreeBASIC with your Raspberry Pi 2? Yes, I think I will. I hadn't realised that FB worked on Raspberry Pi until I came back to this forum after a long absence---. My project is a mini PLC style thing. I want to be able to control some hardware, read status and analog values bac...

Re: AI magazine article

For really simple stuff, I have used the PicAxe micro with good success. It has an onboard BASIC interpreter so programming is very familiar. Plenty of I/O depending which chip you buy. Really handy to knock up a little system for testing other equipment----essentially replaced the 555 for me----and...

Re: Squares

Hey Dodicat---just read you have been unwell. Hope everything turns out OK for you. I don't frequent this forum much these days---ever since I bought a yacht! Its hard to get the salt out of the veins once it gets in there. Sailing is more expensive than programming though--every time I go out somet...
