Computer control
« on: November 28, 2009, 01:20:57 AM »
Hi

If i was going to write a program to be run on a computer to control a robot what language would i use.

I am thinking of a computer controlled robot as a future project and would like to know the language so i can have a better look at my idea and see if the idea is practical.

thanks

If you only have ever programmed using C for a microcontroller you are in for a nasty surprise as to what it takes
to program a PC to do anything useful (especially in C).

If you are interested in doing what you said EASILY, QUICKLY and CHEAPLY.....have a look at this web site for
ways to do it.  http://www.RobotBASIC.com

See these videos that show your goal being accomplished
