BASICtools has always used a version of the C pre-processor. That allows you to #include other files, and that has always been used for definitions of hardware registers. As programs grow it is good to break up files into manageable and often reusable pieces. A feature of our MakeItC has always allowed searching of all files included in a project. That feature now exists in the latest BASICtools.
Well snow fell last week up high, and will fall again this weekend at the lake (Tahoe). So it's time for me to finish my long running thermostat project. This will use an ARM stamp along with an ESP8266. WiFi connectivity to at least gather data on the heating system, and could be used to do a Nest replacement.
We've been OK'd for a Kickstarter project to bring our BASIC to the Arduino Zero family of boards.
Kickstarter page, so check it out, we have a range of rewards available, most will bundle a Zero board with our BASIC. But you can also be part of the beta testers if you have an existing board, and get a copy of the firmware.
About this time two years ago we ran a KickStarter campaign to launch the ARMstamp. That ARM stamp campaign was successful and is available at our webstore.. So now its time to do it again. This is a software download, but we will be bundling with a variety of MKR Zero boards for Kickstarter rewards. Pictured is the uChip from Itaca (we think it's cute).
