FYI, I am developing a way to simulating the functions of LCD (LiquidCrystal library) on a PC. This is relevant to those with some programming experience (c/c++/java etc.) on a PC (win/mac/linux) and can set up proper files and options to link library to your project code. The central purpose of this exercise is to simulate all non-hardware related code on PC for faster speed (no upload), use of debugger, and support of a better IDE for longer programs. Then with fully debugged code on PC, one can in principle copy paste to arduino and expect it to run on arduino. There are countless times where I ran into say using pointers without assigning a value and used it in arduino and it "worked". But on a PC, an exception will be thrown and I will investigate it and fix the code.I am also making various arduino functions including PROGMEM stuff to work on PC by simply modifying Arduino.hIf you are interested, please read this post for updates and a list of currently supported functions in my little experiment.http://arduino.cc/forum/index.php/topic,96197.0.html
BTW, I was looking for a way to replace windows console with ansi console for Dev C++
