Re: LIN Components Help

Thanks Benj. I read through the PDF. Do you have the .fcf examples. I checked the site and didn't see the files that go with the examples in the PDF. It looks straight forward but having a look at the worked examples would help to clarify what is written in the document, and I'm sure, save some time...

Re: LIN Components Help

Hi Steve thanks for your response.
I read through the CAN LIN presentation information on the learning center. The information on LIN is very little and there are no tutorials or programming example's. Please let me know when something is posted.
Anxiously waiting.

Re: RS232 Receive Variable

Thanks Benj A carriage return is ASCII code 13, so you could check for this (use a loop with something like this: "While InChar <> 13"). But note that sometimes, the terminating characters for a line are CR (13) and LF (10). Your other questions are difficult to answer without knowing the ...

Re: RS232 Receive Variable

The unit I'm working with is a dial up modem. The Responses are typical for most modems.
I'll check on whether or not it sends a LF. So that I'm prepared in the event that it does, how would you include the LF in the loop statement or do you.

Re: RS232 Program conflict

Hi Ben. I'm trying to understand the program flow. I noticed that you placed an Interrupt disable at the bottom of Main. Since the Interrupt only occurs when data is present at the RX pin why would you want to disable it? I thought that in Main, outside of interrupts and Items placed inside of loops...
