 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I'm having a compiling issue with TinyDebugSerial

I have searched the forums but can't seem to find the answer (this was the closest, http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,123388.0.html)

I  can get the SoftwareSerial working fine but I can't get TinyDebugSerial to compile.

The error is
tiny_serial:5: error: 'TinyDebugSerial' does not name a type
tiny_serial.cpp: In function 'void setup()':
tiny_serial:9: error: 'mySerial' was not declared in this scope
tiny_serial.cpp: In function 'void loop()':
tiny_serial:15: error: 'mySerial' was not declared in this scope
tiny_serial.cpp: At global scope:
tiny_serial:20: error: function definition does not declare parameters

I have the arduino tiny library installed under hardware and TinyDebugSerial.h is in there
I'm convinced this an error on my MAC rather than an arduino issue.

Can anyone confirm if this compiles please.


The code is this.

#include <TinyDebugSerial.h>
// Definitions
#define rxPin 2
#define txPin 0

TinyDebugSerial mySerial = TinyDebugSerial();

void setup()
{
  mySerial.begin(9600);
}
void loop()
{
   mySerial.print("test");
  delay(1000);
}

If you use this core:

http://code.google.com/p/arduino-tiny/ the TinyDebugSerial is part of the core.

Example

Code:

void setup() {                
Serial.begin(9600);
}

void loop() {
 Serial.println(" Loop\n");
}

You can use baud rates 9600, 38400 and 115200

The TX pin is PB3

Another possibility, is to use TinyISP. This is much easyer, because you don't have to swap connections from programmer to serial/usb connectors.

Erni

As always thanks for the response.

I found the issue and this may be useful to others.
When I extracted the http://code.google.com/p/arduino-tiny/ I created the directory "hardware" and copied the folder into it and closed and reopened Arduino.
The problem was MAC OSX created a folder called "arduino-tiny-0100-0015" with the Tiny library sat inside (folder name is the zip name)

e.g
hardware/arduino-tiny-0100-0015/arduino-tiny/tiny etc....

However when I restarted  and checked under Tools>Board none of the Tiny Library boards where there.
So I dropped the Library down one level
e.g
hardware/arduino-tiny/tiny etc....

Restarted and now it all works fine.

I assume there is some limit on the amount of directories before Arduino stops looking?

Also for those who get garbled text when they get this working I haven't been able to get any of my Uno or Due boards to display clear text so i have just hooked up and FTDI (USB to Serial board) and it works fine.

Has anybody else had success using the Uno board (pin0) as the RS232 interface?

Enri

Again thanks for the prompt in the right direction.

Yes but, if you use an Arduino as the programmer, there is an easier way.  Start reading about here...

Coding Badly

Thanks for the reply & this look likes the ideal solution.

I had a read then downloaded the master and dropped it into the library as TinyISP (MAC OSX IDE 1.01)
If I compile I get a lot of errors, before I continue  I assume it works with 1.01?

It's a sketch not a library.  Move it up one directory level (move it to the sketchbook directory).

Yes (just verified).

Are there any instructions for installing that core? I couldn't find any.

FYI I moved the sketch and it compiled OK, Thanks.
Also the README is Zero Byte

Excellent.  You are welcome.

Thank you for letting me know about the possible problem.

I have not taken the time to compose a README and Github requires one.

I did find a readme file after more searching, it was in one of the subdirectories of the zip. I was expecting to find documentation on the github page or in the root directory of the zip, which is why I didn't find it initially. However, after trying another attiny core (from MIT I think) and being alarmed by the compiler warnings that it evoked, I decided to use AVR Studio 6 instead. I didn't want unnecessary port drivers cluttering up the memory anyway, so I think this was a good choice for me.

Excellent.

If you like Tiny Debug Serial + Serial Relay you'll really like Knock-Bang!  All the benefits of Serial, faster more reliable communications, less Flash, and uses a pin already connected to the Uno.  It's actually small enough to be useful with the ATtiny13 processor.
