Thx a lot for your answer! I'm gonna read that
I have a robot, being built on Arduino basis. I' m a student and I need it for university of applied science (dt. Fachhochschule). The task is to integrate this robot into Microsoft Robotics Developer Studio.
The irony is, that I have tested, better really tried, to overflow the Arduino with my "invented" commands. I couldn't achieve that, even without flow control. Of course I know that I really can't rely on that on every machine (used a laptop, which can't be called high end).
But, and that's why I noted that I'm a student, I should try to go the secure way - programming defensively.
Sure - I could implement some sort of "manual" flow control; but I think, that this solution isn't very graceful and therefore isn't really my first resort.
