151  Using Arduino / Networking, Protocols, and Devices / GSM shield stops working after a week on: November 26, 2011, 09:33:20 am
My GSM shield on a MEGA Arduino is supposed to run continously. But now the shield stops after a week or so. There does not seem be an exact count of seconds when it stops, but it just stops. It is a bit hard to test, because the system is not here. I send the code by email. There is quite a lot code the mage, but it should be full, and I am not declaring any new variables or objects, so it is hard to see what in the code would take a week to crash.

Now as a test, and to keep everything online, the system sends a SMS once a day. Othervise there is not much happening with shield.

Has any of you seen similar.

Use CTRL-T to standardize the code presentation, will also alert you to mismatched ( )s. { }s, and [ ]s.

If you're really stuck, there are some very good guys down under as well.


The IDE gets confused if there are ( )s. { }s, and [ ]s in the comments. Does CTRL-T work there too.

another question if I may ... is there any way to set the monitor to start automatically after uploading?
If I understand you right, then there is a way. Click the "upload" button. Then IDE compiles the program and uploads it and starts serial monitor. But it does not save your program. However you should check this, because I have not uploaded any sketches lately.

Documentation? Someone told me about this on the old forum.

What leds are on? They can take quite a lot of current

I have to check AVR studio, but it requires registration. There is a setting for paths in XP control panel/system. But I think Avr studio could be nice to try.

It works, fine. But C:\Program Files\arduino-0022\hardware\tools\avr\bin is not in my path settings, needed a bit of work before avr-size would run. I copied the exe, is there any reason to include the in path settings. How do you actually do it.

By the way, the numbers seem to be in decimal, not in hex, am I right?

This (too) should be in IDE.

Hm. Why I did not see it yesterday. Thanks!

Thanks, Compile time memory check is good enough for me now. But I found only old elf-files. How do I get those now of my current projects. Or some way check memory at compile time.

I have to search for some of my older posts and then click my sign. There is a My Messages menu on top of the page. I have no messages coming or going but I want to see my posts to forums easily.

Well, C was written to help write an operating system (UNIX), where you are hitting the hardware and want to be able to do pretty much anything.

And now I'll duck. :-)
Heh. Where do you hide, I'll need to hide after this. My turn. One thing which irritates me in C is: I started with assembly programming a long time ago. There you had to know exactly what was a address and what was data in that address. And how to mix and handle both. Exactly. In C a variable is sometimes data and sometime address. I hate that a lot. Please note I like (valid)pointers.

It feels like C was designed by an idiot(s) who didn't understand indirect addressing.
162  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: getting computer to recognize arduino device as HID/keyboard? on: February 28, 2011, 04:34:05 pm
As your link shows a common Arduino board I know one answer. Different kind of USB devices need different drivers. Arduino uses serial USB chip and drivers.

Usb serial chip on Arduino board uses serial port driver in the computer. You need HID driver for that chip. I dont think it exists. But there may be a chips for USB HID device, but that is an other story. They must of course be adapted to Arduino.

With a little electronics, it is possible to make Arduino work as a non USB keyboard. Again an other long story.

Does the IDE work with W7 othervise? I tried it once and got problems. Don't ask what problems, I don't remember.

My project is getting bigger on a XP Pro computer. I am slowly getting worried about ram. There is nothing about this in project folders. What can I do, except clean up my project.

By the way, am I the only one who can't find a suitable forum among Arduino forums.

I was probably sleeping with my eyes open and copy pasted this kind of rubbish into my code. Compiler did not give any errors.
