1  Topics / Education and Teaching / From noob to noob How To Make A Binary (or digital) Clock with Arduino on: January 19, 2012, 08:19:20 am
  This clock is my first program on Arduino not copied from the internet.  Libraries required me to learn the commands  on top of learning C so I made this from scratch in order to figure out how to do things.  It's not efficient but nothing I've seen over the internet will work on my arduino with my system.  They always have something not compatible with something I'm using and it gives me a headache.
  So this is a weeks worth of learning with full comments (not normal but it should be) explaining what everything does so you can use some of this in your own programs and learn "what does what" as well as "how to do this".  I've even included comments on additions to be made for anyone wanting to take it further.
  We noobs gotta stick together cause we can't learn from someone speaking a language we haven't learned yet right? ...
2  Using Arduino / Programming Questions / My copy of “Processing” does not have the “processing.serial” library on: January 06, 2012, 05:08:40 pm
I have searched for weeks online for this library. It is suppose to be built into the core but no matter what I do it can never find the processing.serial library.

Every code I try to run gives me this error msg:

The package "processing.serial" does not exist. You might be missing a library.
No library found for processing.serial As of release 1.0, libraries must be installed in a folder named 'libraries' inside the 'sketchbook' folder.

I am running 1.51 on Windows 7 x64 and have fixed the rx/tx issue already. Searching my computer for the file turns the same results as searching the internet so far, it doesn't seem to exist.

Looking at the Processing site for the library only gives me syntax for the language. I'm exhausted in my search. Please, somebody help this newbie out and tell me what it is that I don't know... I'll post the solution to the processing site as soon as it's fixed so nobody has to go through this again.

Your help is so greatly appreciated...

 Never mind my last...  I just uploaded the sketch to my Uno and found the same issue.  I did change the delay to 50 (more action).  Your programming is way above my level.  I kept the Serial.begin(9600) since the sketch is so small.  Sorry I'm not able to help.

  From what I have learned, some programs cannot use serial output because it takes too much time from the loop.  Try increasing your end delay with Serial.begin commented out.  I'm still pretty new at this but I worked a similar problem out last week.
  If you have the time and patience check the Atmega spec sheet to understand the timing constraints.
Hope this helps... GL   smiley-wink
