Re: I Installed QB64 on a RaspberryPi 3 B

Hi I would like to get qb64 running on Pi 3B+ I'm not at all comfortable with Linux or command line but gave it a go... I typed in the following on the command line... sudo apt-get install g++ libsdl-image1.2-dev libsdl-mixer1.2-dev libsdl-net1.2-dev libsdl-ttf2.0-dev libsdl1.2-dev ....and got a who...

Re: DexBasic Source code

Dex I do hope you're not leaving because of illnes. I for one have enjoyed your input and help and hope you will be back soon. Are you REALLY hanging up your coding irons, or taking on challenges elsewhere? Once bitten by the coding bug its hard to give up - I know. If you don't already know of it, ...

Re: basic programming

Hi Dex, The thing that broke the camels back, is they keep changing things in the boot loaders (firmware), that breaks bare metal code. The whole point of having a device like the pi, is it stays the same. Yea, I sympathise, cant stand the goalposts being moved when you are sitting on the crossbar! ...

Re: Programming- start with Arduino or Olimexino?

Hi For me, the benefit of the Pi over the arduino is the high res display capability (for the price). The downsides (for me) are the long boot time, its reliance on linux and if you want to use it without linux (bare metal) then using all the perfierals is problematic at the moment, but its getting ...

Re: Raspberry Pi OS

Hi Dexos
I can get a cheap £5 usb key board locally, that works fine with the driver.
Do you have a list of compatable keybords to stop me buying randomely as mine happens to be one of those that doesn't work

These are hard wired so best not to mess with them. The example circuit for the display uses 4 data lines 7,8,9,10, and an...

Re: Arduino sketch to PI

Hi By my reckoning you still have eleven I/O pins left - remember all the analogue pins can be used as straight I/O - thats those up the left hand side, lower bank. With eleven pins you can control a LOT of relays (many more than eleven) A quick look at you code shows a moisture detector that will r...

Hi In Arduino not enough pin for lcd, maybe How are you allocating your arduino pins at the moment? There are different lcd displays, the cheaper ones run on 4/8 pin parallel bus and a couple of extra interface pins Say 4+3, and the dearer ones run on serial (spi) which require about 5 pins but you ...

Hi Yes If you mean to re-write the code in something meaninful to the Pi., but not if you mean will the Pi run arduino code as is (as if it were an arduino), the C code libraries I suppose would need to be changed.(C for Pi is not the same as C for arduino.)
