 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I got thinking, and I've decided to write a small client/server for Windows and give the ability of any arduino to have internet connectivity.

How it works is it connects to a computer with internet access and then shares it via the arduino via usb/com port, for now i'm just going to give
client connectivity, eg connect to an IP address and send/recv packets, unless there's a large number of people who want it, i'm going to stick
with client only support.

connect to a server and submit data collected from your sensors.. no ethernet shield required.

Anyone interested?

Perhaps you could try Free Pascal instead of Delphi.

I could but im using a licenced/registered version of it... ill consider it might use it to prototype using delphi and then have a try with c++

What difference does that make? The point is:

Quote
Free Pascal (aka FPK Pascal) is a 32 and 64 bit professional Pascal compiler. It is available for different processors: Intel x86, Amd64/x86_64, PowerPC, PowerPC64, Sparc, ARM. The following operating systems are supported: Linux, FreeBSD, Haiku, Mac OS X/Darwin, DOS, Win32, Win64, WinCE, OS/2, Netware (libc and classic) and MorphOS.

It would allow you to extend your skills.

edit: I have no association with freepascal.org. I have used it a few times. I used Delphi from V1. Last version I had was V7 Architect - The last of the native compilers, before .Net ruined it.

I've looked at fp before inc lazurus... but theres no point me making it harder for myself right now i accept pascal is a dying art form so from that point of view ill just stick to delphi for now and then later on port it to c/cpp but theres no need right now so proof of concept will be easier and im about 50% completed if i use some old code i've written alrady....
