Self Replication Self-replication is any process by which a thing will make a copy of itself
Now this is a property of Pinguino. This code allows you to copy the bootloader of your Pinguino in a new blank ( or not ) chip. I tried it with a 18F2550, i don’t know if it works with a 18F4550 but it should works.
What do you need ? - 3 transistors - 2 LED - some resistors - an external 12Vcc power supply. ( 12Vcc from the computer is OK )
I think i will update this code later to use Pinguino as a real PIC18 programmer.
Marcus, the king of display, made this’ arduino compatible’ library for Pinguino. This library, managed by the library user tool of beta 9, can display pictures and text with a lot of different fonts. I plan to incorporate it in beta 9-02. The development is very fast now and it’s time to launch new release more often.
Today i received a lot of good news from Joan Espinosa. This Venezuelian guy is very active and work around Free software, Free hardware and of course Pinguino. Do you remember that Joan initiated the first version of the multi-langage IDE ? Now Joan and his team have a lot of projects around Pinguino. They are testing a .deb package and i will give you the link when it will be ready for testing. PinguinoVE has now its own website: http://www.pinguino.org.ve/ And this is his Picasa album where you can see the team PinguinoVE: http://picasaweb.google.com/fotospinguinove/6toDiaDebian#
Nice to have news of you Joan, tell us when this Deb package is ready !!
Sphynx ( Jesus ) built this fantastic servo library for Pinguino. He documented it on the Pinguino wiki and fixed some bugs in the delay function. See all his work on Pinguino and electronic on his blog.
ARDE is one of the active community in the Pinguino project. it’s a real pleasure discover everyday more and more users and contributors in Spain coming from this very active association. Thanks to all. I am happy to continue this great adventure with all those spanish guys.
