That might deserve a library able to handle real doubles!
I find it harder to express logic in English than in Code.
Sometimes an example says more than many times as many words.

Using SPI you can send text to a normal VGA monitor (most of us will have one of them lying around).

Example output ...



I modified the Arduino Adventure game I was working on, to quickly replace Serial with a class based on Stream which outputs to this device instead. Haven't got the keyboard working yet, but once done, you could have a full text adventure running out of a tiny box.

You can have colours and stuff like that ... I haven't had time to do that yet. An old PS2 keyboard plugs into it, so you have both input and output.

Neat game! Now if someone could just make an easy SRAM expansion kit for UNO that won't cost 15 pins. The 32KB flash on UNO seems big compared with 2KB SRAM. If you construct c-strings in your memory you run out of memory quickly.

32k code is plenty if there's a data device like SD card behind it.

Received 30$ of components from Tayda electronics last week. A bunch of voltage regulators, leds, transistors, mosfets, switches and 2 ATmega 328P-PU's. Will try to put a bootloader on them later this week.
