Topic: Why is the TimeAlarms library so popular? (Read 505 times) previous topic - next topic


This is a very minor problem so thanks for your trouble.

There is no other library other than the TimeAlarms library, which can set alarms at particular intervals. Why can't I have a library that reads data from another library (DS1307new: since I am using a DS1307RTC to keep track of the time: http://www.pjrc.com/teensy/td_libs_DS1307RTC.html) and then use that data to set the alarm? I also require some method to delete an alarm, which is the major reason why I didn't choose the TimeAlarms library.

Thanks for you help!  8) XD


I imagine it is only popular amongst those that want to use it. You can always make your own alarms, e.g.

Code: [Select]
 if (hour == 0 && minute == 0 && second <2)

I'm sure you could use transient variables instead of fixed values.



Just drop the alarm from your linked list.

I am so a noob. Why didn't I think of that before? Thanks for your help.
