Description Leo Franchi 2004-10-11 21:28:27 UTC
Interactive C is a C language designed for programming robots using the RCX or Handyboard robot controller. IC consists of a compiler (with interactive command-line compilation and debugging) and a run-time machine language module. IC implements a subset of C including control structures (for, while, if, else), local and global variables, arrays, pointers, structures, 16-bit and 32-bit integers, and 32-bit floating point numbers. Built in libraries support a variety of sensors and actuators including servo and DC motors, sonars, encoders, touch and light sensors and the CMUcam color tracker. IC4 also includes a context sensitive editor, built in documentation and the ability to upload data from the robot controller back to the host pc.

This is my first ebuild, so please feel free to shoot me down as much as necessary. This was primarily written to scratch an itch, onlt once I was done did I decide to distribute it, so I cannot make any guarantee as to the quality.

Reproducible: Always

The package does seem interesting enough, but a small problem remains.  I'm not sure of any of the devs that have this sort of hardware to test this package with.  Trying to keep Gentoo as problem free as possible means being able to test for issues as they appear.  If a hardware donation of an RCX or Handyboard robot controller (and a test robot itself) was provided, this would not be too much of an issue.  I hope this explains things well.
Comment 3 Leo Franchi 2004-10-12 07:21:06 UTC
Thats ok, I really only provided the ebuild here in case others want/need it. I understand that support for hardware that developers do not have is impossible, as it makes testing impossible.

Anyway, thanks for your time,

Closing as CANTFIX due to inability for hardware testing.  To at least
provide some sort of suggesstion, you might want to try suggesting this
ebuild to BMG (Break My Gentoo) overlays for interested persons.  Hope that
