If you read an Eastern Indian cookbook written in English, do you say it's written in "Indian food language" or do you say it's written in English? Yeah, you find curry and Indian eggplant very seldom used in cooking pasta or other western dishes, but that cookbook is still in English, not "Indian food language".
The Arduino Cookbook is written in "Arduino food language"
The moral of my story? Well I guess patience and perseverance, and watch out for data typing problems. Whilst I am far from expert, I hope that now I will be able to help someone else at least in some small way on a similar project.
you picked exactly the right part of the forum (the Bar) and I look forward to seeing your input.
