Porting code to Arduino

Years ago I wrote some code for an Intel 68HC05.

Although I suspect the answer is “no”, would there be any quick and simple way to port that code to an Arduino? (ie One that doesn’t require me to go through the whole process of having to relearn what I forgot 20yrs ago.)

It’s just an idea, and I can probably learn enough Arduino code for a similar project fairly quickly, but it would be nice to reuse an old project.

I suspect the answer is "no"

You are right.

You might at least mention what language you used. If it was assembler, the answer is "no".

Anyway, you don't have to relearn what you forgot, you just learn new stuff.

Yeah, wrote it in assembly code. (Ah, those were the days when I could even read hex.)
Never mind.
I was supposed to be studying C++ as well. Guess it's time to learn that now.

Thanks anyway.

It is far, far easier to rewrite. Even when I look at code in C, at times I say "what the ..."?

Then I write it again. At least then I know how it works.

BTW, I used to write assembler for the 6800. Forget trying to "port" the code.

My memory is that assembly code was also far easier to write. It was wonderful and simple and logical and I really need to get out more!

I think that is probably because when writing assembly language you know that you have to think of every little nuance and you tend to work to a plan rather than making it up as you go along. When writing in higher level languages it seems much easier but you still need to turn on your brain and have a plan in mind.

To compound things further C/C++ let's you write code that compiles but is fatally flawed. Not that I have ever written outside the bounds of an array, of course.....

As you get older, your memory plays tricks.
I call it rose-tinted hindsight.

There I fixed that for you. And this is coming from someone that wrote thousands of lines of assembler code.
