Hello rudolf48,

I tried the KnockBang protocol, but I got the error message from the compiler :
  warning: TinyDebugKnockBang.h: No such file or directory


You put the files in the wrong location.

Also copying them to the "hardware/cores/tiny" folder did not help.


Don't put them there.

I had copied before both files to the "library" folder.


"library" or "libraries"?  Under a folder named "TinyDebugKnockBang"?

The correct location is...

[font=Courier New]{Arduino Sketch Root}\libraries\TinyDebugKnockBang\[/font]

Hello Coding Badly,

Thank you for the hint with the library path. That was my fault.
Because I forget so quickly, I documented that KnockBang setup in my wiki.
  http://www.rudiswiki.de/wiki9/AVRTinyISP#KnockBang_serial_protocol

Please take a time to read the details, if I have all necessary documented.

Regards, Rudolf

Hello rudolf48,

This...

The application program must have the following statements for debug output, for example:

Code: [Select]
# declaration
#include <TinyDebugSerial.h>
TinyDebugSerial mySerial = TinyDebugSerial(); // PB1 = TX pin

# in function setup()
 mySerial.begin( 9600 );    // for tiny_debug_serial

# in function loop()
 mySerial.println( "Testing...");  // debug output


...is not necessary.  The Tiny Core already includes an instance of TinyDebugSerial named Serial.  This should work...

Code: [Select]
# in function setup()
 Serial.begin( 9600 );    // for tiny_debug_serial

# in function loop()
 Serial.println( "Testing...");  // debug output

Coding Badly


I think the Knock-Bang example can be reduced to this...

Code: [Select]
#define KNOCK_BANG 1
#include <TinyDebugKnockBang.h>

#ifdef KNOCK_BANG
#define Serial Debug
#endif


..then you just use Serial...

Code: [Select]
// the setup routine runs once when you press reset:
void setup() {               
  // initialize the digital pin as an output.
  pinMode(led, OUTPUT); 
  Serial.begin( 9600 );
}

// the loop routine runs over and over again forever:
void loop() {
  digitalWrite(led, HIGH);   // turn the LED on (HIGH is the voltage level)
  delay(1000);               // wait for a second
  digitalWrite(led, LOW);    // turn the LED off by making the voltage LOW
  delay(1000);
  Serial.println( "Testing...");  // debug output
}

Hello Coding Badly,

Thank you very much for improving my example C-code. Probably I will never reach this level  :(
  http://www.rudiswiki.de/wiki9/AVRTinyISP#KnockBang_serial_protocol

I am answering so late, because I struggled a day finding a loose contact on my breadboard  :(

But now I have a compact and clever debugging tool for the ATtiny's.

Best regards, Rudolf

Nice write-up rudolf.

My thoughts about Serial Relay and Knockbang.

I think the buty about Serial Relay is that you have two way communication. This makes the tiny environment look and feel almost like an Arduino.

If you want to utilize this feature you have to use SoftwareSerial, atleast that is my understanding.
On the other hand I can see the advantage of using the TinyDebugSerial: You can take a Arduino sketch an compile it for a tiny without midifying the Serial.print() statements.

Just a follow up on a previous post:

I have tried using KnockBang on a Attiny13, with no luck

I get this error:

Code: [Select]

In file included from tiny_knockbang.cpp:1:
D:\arduino-1.01\arduino-1.0.1-windows (1)\arduino-1.0.1\libraries\TinyDebugKnockBang/TinyDebugKnockBang.h:55: error: 'fstr_t' does not name a type


Coding Badly


Delete that line (#55) from TinyDebugKnockBang.h ...
https://github.com/Coding-Badly/TinyDebugKnockBang/blob/master/TinyDebugKnockBang.h#L55

Erni

After deleting line 55, I get this error:

Code: [Select]
D:\arduino-1.01\arduino-1.0.1-windows (1)\arduino-1.0.1\libraries\TinyDebugKnockBang/TinyDebugKnockBang.h:152: error: expected ',' or '...' before '*' token

I am using smeezekitty's core:

http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,89781.0.html

http://sourceforge.net/projects/ard-core13/

Coding Badly


The core is missing this...
Code: [Select]
class __FlashStringHelper;
#define F(string_literal) (reinterpret_cast<const __FlashStringHelper *>(PSTR(string_literal)))


I suggest adding it to WProgram.h.

You may have to also add this to the top...
Code: [Select]
#include <avr/pgmspace.h>

Thanks,

I added these to the WProgram.h, which gave another error:

Code: [Select]
D:\arduino-1.01\arduino-1.0.1-windows (1)\arduino-1.0.1\libraries\TinyDebugKnockBang/TinyDebugKnockBang.h:156: error: 'DEC' was not declared in this scope


So I added #include "print.h" in the WProgram.h , and now it compiles and uploads.

When I open the serial monitor (19200 baud) and type a ! I get this error:

--- Knock-Bang fault: 15 ---

I was thinking it maybe had something to do with the clock speed which was 128kHz, so I tried at 9,6 mHz and got this error:

--- Knock-Bang fault: 11 ---
i get the correct respons from the serial monitor, when I use  @,# and !

Excellent.

The minimum supported clock speed is 1 MHz.  If I can remember, I'll put a check in the header file.

fault_timeout_knock ... In the interrupt service routine, a knock was not detected within the time limit.

Other then a wire, is anything connected to MISO?

Try adding a 10K or 4.7K or 1K pullup resistor to MISO.  And/or, if the wire on MISO connecting the programmer to the target is longish, try a shorter and/or fatter wire.
