1  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Re: Using "Serial available" on: April 09, 2014, 06:36:04 pm
I found the cause!
Basic error - left off the reset pullup resistor on my "similar to an Arduino" project.

You are right of course and I have done this with similar programs.
Since I am using similar methods as those that work I don't know what it is causing the problem and was hoping for a few hints at areas to look at.

Right of course!  sorry I did not mention the arduino 328 chip is embedded in the PCB in the project and is powered from the device ( fridge) it controls. I am interfacing with another arduino board less chip via the coms terminals of the embedded chip so it is always powered up..

4  Using Arduino / Project Guidance / Using "Serial available" on: April 09, 2014, 03:23:45 am
G'day All,
I have a program that I wish to use with and without a serial output, ie. I plug a into a port to do diagnostics or changes to the code but want it to run alone without connection to the PC. How would be a way to do that please?
(The program runs Ok when connected to the PC but stops when I pull out the plug on the serial connection. The communication is one way, out to the PC display putting aside uploading the program.)

Thanks Mike,

I (unusually) hadn't tried google but got some leads as you suggest.

6  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Library Documentation on: February 22, 2014, 03:52:48 am
G'day Everyone,

I've been trying to find where the documentation for the various libraries is, ie. a listing of the commands or operating instructs when using one.
So far no luck, can someone throw me a rope or hint or two please ??

7  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: JAVA error message on: December 07, 2013, 01:12:14 am
Note to self !

Try harder before asking !!

The error was caused by a missing " in a Serial.print line.

G'day All,

I'm getting an error part way through compiling some code.
Since the error I've made is not outlined I'm having trouble knowing where to look.

The error comes up
        at java.util.regex.Pattern$GroupHead.match(Pattern.java:4168)
   at java.util.regex.Pattern$Loop.match(Pattern.java:4295)
   at java.util.regex.Pattern$GroupTail.match(Pattern.java:4227)

Any help welcomed !!

9  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / Re: "min" function with multiple numbers. on: November 11, 2013, 12:23:17 am
Thanks to All,

On the subject of the brackets, the first solution didn't solve it but Vaclav's extra brackets did .

10  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / "min" function with multiple numbers. on: November 10, 2013, 09:59:55 pm
G'Day All,
I'm trying to take the smallest of 3 numbers using the "min" function, using as a reference 'The ardunio cookbook' page 75.
             
              CWsens = analogRead ( CWsensorPIN );
               delay(5);
               int CWsens1 = analogRead ( CWsensorPIN );
               delay(5);
               int CWsens2 = analogRead ( CWsensorPIN );
               delay(5);
               CWsens = min ( CWsens, min(CWsens1), CWsens2 ) ;

I've tried a few variations but it comes up with the error "min was not declared in this scope".
Can someone put me out of my misery ?

G'Day,
I've been trying the mod with good results except when I drag the top of the window upwards to the top of the desktop to have the window full length (Win 7 Home premium 64bit). When I do that it freezes until I reduce the height o f the window.

Very handy, works well (takes me back to Win98 !!!).

13  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Re: Sketch file listing on: November 23, 2012, 08:39:36 pm
Yeah,
That's what I do, I am just curious.
I imagine most would have a long list of sketches after a while.

14  Using Arduino / Installation & Troubleshooting / Sketch file listing on: November 23, 2012, 06:55:19 pm
G'Day All,
After starting Arduino 1.1
When I hit the up arrow in the toolbar to load a sketch the list fills the screen (height wise) and I can't scroll down to the bottom of the list.
I'm using Win7, can that be fixed ??

Cheers ............ Mike B
15  Using Arduino / Microcontrollers / Programmers on: July 08, 2012, 08:22:21 am
G'day All,

Under the tools menu is the option to choose a programmer like "AVR ISP" etc.
I can't turn up any reference to the use of the various programmers.
How do I decide which to use for a specific board ??

Cheers ............ Blakey
