Topic: Newsoftserial site down??? arduiniana.org (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic


I've been trying to download the new soft serial library from arduiniana.org but the site does not respond.
Anyone know if the site is permanently down???  or does any one have the library and can share it.  I am trying to use the Xbee library but it works of off newsoftserial.... 


I experienced simialar problem during the weekend.
The newSoftSerial library is now part of Arduino core (v 1.0).
You can just use the SoftwareSerial class : http://arduino.cc/en/Reference/SoftwareSerial


I tried it ut get errors.  It will accept the Softwareserial library when I change the #INCLUDE statement but nothing works and when I get rid of the debugging comment marks lines that start with nss.print(....) will not be recognized.

I am wondering if using a fio instead of an uno is the issue....
Is there any one on the board that might be willing to help me set up a very simple arduino xbee series 1 project???  I can pay if I can afford the price....

All I need is for an arduino fio/xbee/accelerometer to send x and y data to a an arduino uno with xbee shield.  Actually tthere are two xbee/fio/transmitting modules so there are four pieces of data that would be received by the uno...

Shoud not be that hard but I've been stumped for a while...  I thought using the library would be the solution but I cant even get the sample programs to work.

I've gotten as far as setting up the network and seeing data received at the uno end but even in api mode whee I ignore the xbee specific data, the values that should represent the accelerometer values still dont match....

What is weird is that as big as the arduino community is, not very many people like to discuss xbee.... lots of posts but few replies???
digi.com isnt much help either and the only books Ive found only deal with series 2 modules....  very frustrating....


find attached the 10.c version, dont think it is the latest version (but the first I could find:)

Thanks!!!  I'll try it out during my lunch break and see if it does the trick!!


I just tried dropping your attached library into my libraries folder but when I tried verifying the xbee library's rx or tx examples I got the following error message.... any ideas???

In file included from Series1_Tx.cpp:21:
C:\Users\fxmech\Documents\Documents\Arduino\arduino-1.0\libraries\NewSoftSerial/NewSoftSerial.h:71: error: conflicting return type specified for 'virtual void NewSoftSerial::write(uint8_t)'

Yes. First, start reading the responses from the top of the thread again. Pay particular attention to reply #1.


I read reply#1 thats what my reply#2 was based on... 
Thanks again Robtillaart for the helpful post...


The SoftwareSerial library in 1.0 is the same as the NewSoftSerial for 0023 and earlier, except that the error you are getting was corrected.

If you can't get SoftwareSerial to work, you won't get NewSoftSerial to work, either, since it is the same code.
