Topic: Hacking horus-fw.ino file for Ciclop 3d scanner (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

I'm following a turorial and building my ciclop 3d laser scanner with arduino, the tutorial says to get the horus-fw.ino available here https://github.com/bqlabs/horus-fw, but the horus-fw.ino file shows only this:

/*                              */
/* Hack file to use Arduino IDE */
/*                              */

What does he mean by that, how do i "hack" the file? which file?
I'm kind of a noob on this, searched all internet and i'm still confused, thanks for helping

The code is ready (at least it compiles okay for me).
You download/clone the git repository and ensure the folder name matches the .ino file (without the .ino on the end), in this example the folder will be called 'horus-fw'.
Open the horus-fw.ino file in the IDE and it will also load the other files in the folder into tabs.
You can now compile and upload the sketch.

The /* Hack file to use Arduino IDE */ comment is because the Arduino IDE expects a .ino file but it is not used here because one of the other files in the folder is called main.c and this will be the entry point to the program.
Don't PM me for help as I will ignore it.
