Finding Documentation

Team 302 has decided to look into C++ for next year, and we’ve run into an odd problem. We can’t find much documentation. The majority of the stuff we found is from 2008-2010 and such. Is there any central source or do we have to hunt?

FirstForge is the “official” place for WPILib for C++ and Java. This link should take you to the Documents section.

WPI’s ThinkTank portal has some programming resources

The best documentation is ALWAYS the source code. Luckily for you, WPILib is open source, and you get said source when you install the software.

Also, if you’ve ever used doxygen before, you can generate documentation FROM the source code. This documentation is relatively complete. You can see an example at of what this looks like.
