so heres yet another $50 robot question. i'm done building and i've programmed (sucessfully) everything. the thing is, is that it doesn't behave properly, more specificaly it really just goes in a straight line with no signs of the the photovoreness it should have. i found from a previuos forum post that those behaviors are relatively normal the first time you turn on your robot and it was recommended that i test everything thoroughly, including writing little test codes for each component. and i've done all the testing except the code writing part.
this is where my troubles begin.
luckily i found this forum post that had a bunch of test codes already written out:http://www.societyofrobots.com/robotforum/index.php?topic=909.0
the problem is i'm not sure how to put this into avr studio to make it work. (also i should now say that i am indeed using the avrisp mkll) what i've tried is starting a new project and copying and pasting the code from the forum post and i get the following error:
../servo_test.c:2: error: expected identifier or '(' before 'while'
this means little to me. i've been to numerous learn c websites hoping to figure out what to do and i've found nothing, at least what i could comprehend. so while doing some sweet spacing out at work today, i came up with some theories... i'm guessing that a header file is needed. if it is, should i start out the code: #include "headerfile here" but obviously with the header file in the " ". Or is adding the header file the same way as is in the $50 tutorial sufficient? and what about this makefile? is that always important? can i use the one from the $50 robot? and do i add it the same way? so i came home and tried it out, but with no luck and a ton off errors and warnings and honestly, not much surprise from myself. if that information is important i can take a screen shot and post it.
i hope i'm not being to vague, if needed i bet i could clarify on specifics. if someone can make sense of this and help me out you'll be my freakin hero.
thanks in advance. you rule!
