Re: Bounty for complete EV3 C/C++ API

Let's start with the API for outputs. Are you satisfied with the state of the latest of my API versions? I can put the NXC doxygen headers on that code and generate documentation for it. What about an API for sounds, LCD, button input, and LED outputs? All of those are in place, with the exception ...

Re: information about setting up C / BCC for EV3

Apologies if I am in the wrong thread but, as a non-programmer, I am totally confused by what I read about coding the EV3. I have only one project which is written in NXC. Can I just download the latest bricxcc and find a newer version of NXC into which I can load my existing program? Or do I have ...

Re: EV3 BCC / C software problem(s)

So will there once be a ANSI printf-like (variable multi-format, variable multi-parameter) graphic screen output command, probably established by function overloading? (You remember, missing this was already an issue to me for the NXT, and I don't like TextOut and/or NumOut because they don't featu...

Re: AVCampos Introduction

Hi all! I'm Alexandre, and I'm from Portugal. I have a background in electrical engineering (almost finished the degree), and I always loved LEGO from my early days, so much that I never had my "dark age". From those two aspects of me, it's not very surprising that my favourite themes are Technic a...

Re: PyEV3 (peeve?)

Ok here is a python with pip included: https://www.dropbox.com/s/irb0hvnb771obx9/ev3python.tar.gz You need to use rdate to set the time correctly, otherwise SSL does not work. Then you can just say ./ev3python/bin/pip install awesometuff It would be great if there is a Sticky Post or a page somewhe...

Re: information about setting up C / BCC for EV3

There is a bug with BricxCC Project Manager, it does not include with relative paths. Technically, this is just a "not yet implemented" feature rather than a bug. I would recommend for the time being just keeping all your source files in the same folder as the library files, though you don't need t...

Re: EV3 - First Impressions

Thanks for the first impressions. It is very useful to me. Any info on the NXT-G software, especially if there are new Fantom drivers needed? I'm curious if they have new Fantom drivers with Mac OSX 64-bit support. After installing the Retail EV3 Software and some digging, I found that the Fantom d...

Re: EV3 I/O library

eclipse is far from a dimension like loving or hating it. It'a a monster where you're drowned in an avalanche of settings and paths and libraries and platforms and what else. Even already correctly installing eclipse is a nightmare. Eclipse was the first-rate reason why I for instance never got in ...

Re: EV3 I/O library

My preference would be to produce a standard API library which I think could be called brickOS/EV3, i.e., after the original brickOS for the RCX. My approach so far to this API has been to model the functions after the NXC API so that in C/C++ and Pascal you could write code that looks a lot like N...

Re: EV3 SDK v0.1

Hello all, For all of you who are interrested in the EV3 SDK there is a lot of platform documentation we can read before the official LEGO SDK release. The EV3 is based on the TI AM1808 ARM9 (Sitara, DaVinci, AM-138, OMAP1-...): [...] Base Page of the (actual) SDK: http://www.ti.com/tool/LINUXEZSDK...
