I was told that there was a really good paper in interupts. Could anyone point me to that?
Also, any docu about how to use/write to EEPROM would be much appriciated!
Ultamently i want to create a command line interface for my robot. This will be complete with the ability to tweak settings and perhaps script autonomous code on the fly. A status screen would also be very nice but for that i would need to understand how VT100 works.
I have EEPROM code that works with the robot controllers. A version that will work with the 2004/2005 controllers can be found here: http://kevin.org/frc/2005/. I’ll release a version for the 2006 controller soon (It’s done, but I want to do some testing).
Well, the new camera menuing code should give you some ideas.
Since the IFI terminal is somewhat restrictive, you might
consider using one of the free high quality terminal emulators
available. TeraTerm Pro ([http://www.ayera.com/teraterm](http://www.ayera.com/teraterm)) and
PuTTY ([http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty](http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/putty)) are
a few examples. If you dive into the existing code or create
your own custom menus (as I hope you will), you might consider
writing code that will exploit the capabilities of a good
terminal emulator. To get started, do a google search on the
phrase "terminal escape codes".
You’ll find my interrupt template code for the 2004/2005 controller here: http://kevin.org/frc/2005. It should work just fine with the 2006 controller, but I haven’t tried compiling interrupts.c/.h for the new controller so your mileage may vary.
