Bitlash 1.1 is available for download at http://bitlash.net

Bitlash is an interactive command shell and application environment for Arduino.  It implements a C-like language that can run from macros stored in EEPROM.

This release makes it Really Easy to add your C code as a Bitlash function.  If you follow a few rules for setting up your function, you can wrap it in Bitlash without having to write a line of parsing code. You get all the parsing, macros, printing, and the rest of the runtime library for free.  Read more about the user functions facility at http://bitlash.net/wiki/userfunctions and see the new examples in the Bitlash 1.1 distribution.

There are also new functions inb() and outb() for access to the AVR registers from Bitlash code.  More on the Functions page: http://bitlash.net/wiki/functions

This version is tested with the recently-released Arduino 0018 IDE and works with 0017 as well.

Finally, there's a blog post at http://entropymouse.com with a complete walkthrough of the servo example, showing how add a user function to drive multiple servos with time-driven state machines in Bitlash.

Happy hacking!

Thanks :)

PS: I liked the old website a bit more :D

Are you able to plan when bitlash can be compatible with xduino or mapple i.e stm32 board.
This board are much more powerfull and fast than arduino and IDE start to work.

What do you think about using such board for bitlash and do you think a year can seems a reasonable delay to achieve such a goal ?


I think using such a board for Bitlash is a great idea and would be very practical.  One issue that would need to be addressed is the question of what to use in place of the AVR EEPROM for macro storage.  Perhaps an SPI eeprom...

Bitlash is written to be very portable, and the source is open so anyone who pleases can take on a project like this.   Bringing up the core on a new chip or platform is usually only a couple days' work, mainly involving thinking through differences like EEPROM, pin mapping, pin configuration models, etc.  In this case, since the proposed platform has more generous resources, there would be less struggle with code size.

If someone is sufficiently motivated to take on such a port I am happy to provide support, both moral and technical.  For an expert in the platform it would be a short slide of compiler bashing.
