My understanding is that "C++" does mean what you said, the next C increment.

Would ++C be different then C++?! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol:

Strip Board

Hi all,

I read about the "Stripboards" in the last(?) Nuts&Volts mag (was it an ad?)
They sound really neat, and I want to get some.

BUT :sad:

Their site is down....

www.stripboard.com

Does anyone know where I can get some?

How about creating a batch file that does all the DOS cleanup commands on the directories you need (del \tenmp_area\*.* /q), then after the batchfile all works as planned, put it into your "startup" area (Start --> Program --> Startup). This should run the batchfile at startup. Hope it help! ~Kam (^8*

Hi there,

You can also get EVERYTHING you need from CCS (www.ccsinfo.com), the C compiler, proto boards, Programmers etc.

Microchip also sells protoboards etc., They have a kit that contains the PicDem2 Plus proto board, and a ICD2.

I thougth that sharing a single res for all the segments could exceed the res value if the segments where not multiplexed. Meaning, if I turn on only 1 segment at a time, the 220res wou...

Radio shacks in an interesting position, they are neither an "electronics/tech" shop or a "Circuit City-esk" store. When I need par...

Small LCD/LED screen...

Hi all, I'm trying to locate a LED/LCD screen that is approx 1" x 0.75" in size that I can control with a PIC family of chips. I'd like a small screen to be able to do simple graphics (eg. Fonts) and that has a somewhat good dpi (don't want no chubby graphics)... Any idea's where/what etc? ~Kam (^8*
