i took this code from the aruino website,

Code: [Select]

/* Read Jostick
  * ------------
  *
  * Reads two analog pins that are supposed to be
  * connected to a jostick made of two potentiometers
  *
  * We send three bytes back to the comp: one header and two
  * with data as signed bytes, this will take the form:
  * Jxy\r\n
  *
  * x and y are integers and sent in ASCII
  *

int ledPin = 13;
int joyPin1 = 0;                 // slider variable connecetd to analog pin 0
int joyPin2 = 1;                 // slider variable connecetd to analog pin 1
int value1 = 0;                  // variable to read the value from the analog pin 0
int value2 = 0;                  // variable to read the value from the analog pin 1

void setup() {
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);              // initializes digital pins 0 to 7 as outputs
  beginSerial(9600);
}

int treatValue(int data) {
  return (data * 9 / 1024) + 48;
}

void loop() {
  // reads the value of the variable resistor
  value1 = analogRead(joyPin1);   
  // this small pause is needed between reading
  // analog pins, otherwise we get the same value twice
  delay(100);  
  // reads the value of the variable resistor
  value2 = analogRead(joyPin2);   

  digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);           
  delay(value1);
  digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);
  delay(value2);
  serialWrite('J');
  serialWrite(treatValue(value1));
  serialWrite(treatValue(value2));
  serialWrite(10);
  serialWrite(13);
}


and it gives this error code when i try to verify

sketch_jul20a.cpp: In function 'void setup()':
sketch_jul20a:24: error: 'beginSerial' was not declared in this scope
sketch_jul20a.cpp: In function 'void loop()':
sketch_jul20a:44: error: 'serialWrite' was not declared in this scope


can anyone advise me on what i need to do to correct it?

many thanks

That's really old code, I'm guessing.
Code: [Select]
Serial.begin(9600); is the correct form.
Code: [Select]
Serial.print in other cases.

Can you provide links to where you found it please?

After fixing that now i have this part
Code: [Select]
serialWrite('J');

producing error code

sketch_jul20a.cpp: In function 'void loop()':
sketch_jul20a:44: error: 'serialWrite' was not declared in this scope

any ideas?
