what is with the compiler speed? it takes on my atom 1,6ghz with 3gigs of ram around 30-60second to compile a sketch with 400 lines? I change one parameter like a constant and i need to wait 30 seconds to see the change.
besides that the complier is unreliable. i had it to compile one of my projects, and it compiled. and it compiled... and so on. Until i realized that it hang. ?! ok, lets do that again.. restart of arduino ide, restart of computer... nothing helps. no warning message.
ok, lets go throug my code and i selectively commented things out that were lastly added.
what i found out: there were two things that did not cause the problem on its own, but it seems that there needs to be some code around them. the first was i had some code for the SD card writes
some code here... dataString +=";"; some code here...
instead it should be
What is the problem is that the compiler did not put an error messaged but it looped. second code where i had an ds1307 RTC
the compiler hanged/looped without error. corrected code which compiled was
this is one of few things why i will not donate my money if i see that it is not going invested into the things that matter for me: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Main/ContributionFAQ
make a kicstarter / votebox system where i can vote for things that need to be implemented as higher priority.
My backstory: I am working with the arduino for the last year now, and the thing is comming very frustrating to use. I have been trying to get to work a sketch that one month ago worked and is now just somehow screewed in i do not know why.
I have been installing it on a second PC to see if it is computer related or did anything other changed (i know i put some libriares from the new library system installing).
