Programming :: Create A RS232 C Program That Executes A Series Of Commands Down The Line To A Robot?

Jan 5, 2011

I am trying to create a RS232 C program that executes a series of commands down the line to a robot. Everything seems to work fine, except any sequential write to the serial port. At first I thought it was the UART's buffer being filled too fast, but even with a 50 uS delay it still throws the error.

Here is my code:

#include <termios.h>
#include <stdio.h>
#include <unistd.h>
#include <fcntl.h>
#include <sys/signal.h>
#include <sys/types.h>

Programming :: Script Which Logs Into Devices Over Ssh And Executes Commands?

Mar 23, 2010

I would like to make a script, where I specify my Cisco devices IP addresses as arguments to the script and then this script automatically logs into every one of them and does "show version" and "exit" in every Cisco device. I have public/private key authentication system with my Cisco devices- thats why I'm using ssh-agent and ssh-add. I did something like this:


if [ -z $1 ]; then
echo USAGE:
echo "$0 IP1 IP2 IP3 IPn"


However, it logs nicely into the first device(I'm able to execute IOS commands in this first Cisco device etc) and then does nothing further.

Programming :: Transferring A Program Across Rs232?

Dec 16, 2009

I've started development on a ARM board. The ARM board displays it's command prompt through it's rs232 output. So I open putty/minicom (rs232 display) and can see and interact with the ARM linux system through my PC. The ARM root fs is on a USB pen, So I cross compile on my PC, then plug the pen into my PC copy the exe into the home/usr etc folder. Then unplug. plug it into the ARM boot the ARM and from my PC rs232 window can run the code. However plugging/unplugging is taking an age, I'm sure there must be a way to transfer the exe across the rs232. I've tried to use putty minicom to do so throught various methods xmodem etc but don't seem to be able to. I think I must have to do something on the ARM end but am unsure what?

Fedora :: Making A Shortcut That Executes A Couple Commands At Once ?

Jul 14, 2011

I want to use a desktop icon shortcut that essentially does this...

Is there a way I can do this? I don't really want to create an alias because I just want it to be an icon I double click to do all of this. But if I have to create an alias in which it does these ocmmands then I use the shortcut to terminal... then it types the alias that is fine also.

General :: Shell Script That Logs Into Another Machine And Executes Some Commands?

Jan 5, 2011

I am trying to write a script that connects to a server and executes some commands on there. Something like this:

telnet remote_machine
cd /home/some_directory
cat a_file_in_current_directory

Unfortunately after login/password I guess the script doesn't jump past the telnet command, until I exit. What do I need to do to make the script start executing commands in the remote shell?

Ubuntu :: Daemon That Executes Commands Based On Input Device In Use?

Jan 28, 2011

I have a computer with a trackpad and a touchscreen. I want to run unclutter if I use the touchscreen, and kill it when I use the trackpad or a USB mouse.

The I'm pretty sure the touchscreen is /dev/input/mouse0, and the trackpad is /dev/input/mouse1

I have a general idea of how this should work, but no idea what tools and commands to use to implement it.

Programming :: Make The Robot Obey Compiled .cc File?

Player-Stage uses .cc files. I know how to compile them. But how do I actually execute my code? There is an output file generated. There is nothing in the .cfg file or in the .world file that specifies what program to use to run the robot. Or is it not specified in the world or cfg files?

Then how to make the robot obey my compiled .cc file? If this question is silly or if I am asking stupid questions

General :: How To Create Multiple Children Before Any Child Executes

Aug 27, 2010

Iv got an assignment to complete and I'm stuck at the basic level.

A part of the assigned problem is :

The main process will read the file, and will create N number of child processes (Where N is taken as input) as early as possible before all the children starts its execution. Before creation of each child, the main process should read the file to store all the required data in then corresponding data structure. Child processes should not read the file for getting their information.

As far as my knowledge about this , the child executes before the parent. How do I make the parent not pass the control to it's children before it finishes creating all the children?

Programming :: Rs232 Serial Port Programming?

Jun 1, 2010

I have been working on writing a small rs232 driver like minicom for months. I am almost there, I have the interrupt service routine running, I can read() ok. However when I write(), it returns the number of characters written, 1, but nothing is actually written out the port. I researched termios, and they say that serial port programming is really messy in linux/unix.

I am probably not setting up the port parameters correctly, or my write() function is not doing what it is supposed to. As I said, write() is returning successful. Other comm programs run ok (picocom & gtkterm) on my hardware. I am running knoppix/debian on an ancient computer. I saw other guys using slackware.

Programming :: Communicate To RS232 Using Fstream?

Apr 1, 2009

I'm trying to attach an fstream to serial port for reading and writing with the following code:


#include <iostream>
#include <fstream>
#include <string>


The code compiles without errors, but doesn't catch any input text from the device attached to RS232. I have tried it with Rx and Tx connected, but didn't receive my text back. It works OK if I substitute /dev/ttyS0 with an ordinary file, but any attempt to use /dev/ttyS0 seems to lead to an empty answer string. I tried this on a PC under Ubuntu Linux 7.10.

Fedora :: Installiing Fonts Using Long Series Of Terminal Commands?

May 14, 2011

I used Ubuntu for three years and was recently trying Debian and am now giving Fedora a try. When I switched to Linux I was almost computer illiterate. Even now I only know a little about using the terminal. So forgive me for asking such a simple question.I want to install some extra founts that I need, but Fedora is a little different than the systems I am familiar with. I quickly looked through posts in this forum and noticed solutions using long series of terminal commands. With Debian and Ubuntu I added founts by using a nautilus command to get by the permissions (specifically, gksu nautilus). Does Fedora have a similar tool, or must I use the terminal? I want to install quite few founts and do not want to spend a whole day doing it. If terminal is the best solution, I need a little clarification. I saw people using su in their command lines. Does that refer to sudo?

General :: Bash Scripting - Executes A Few Perl Scripts - Create A New Array And Take The Hostname

Apr 4, 2011

I'm writing a bash script that executes a few perl scripts. One of the perl scripts that I need to execute requires two arguments with it. The arguments are stored in a txt file, each line contains a hostname and its corresponding IP address separated by a ":" (colon), the txt file looks like this below:


I'm not sure if it's the best way to accomplish this but here it goes. In the bash file, let's call it, I create an array and assign each line of the file to an element in that array. I then think I need to create a new array where I take the hostname (which is before the ":") separate it from its IP address and place the IP address on a new line just below the hostname (this way I can reference to it like $hostNames[$x] would be the hostname, and $hostNames[$x+1] would be its IP address). So the new array would now look like this below:

Programming :: Streamout Command To RS232 - Send Something Through Serial Port?

Aug 5, 2010

I want to send something through the serial port, for example


the point here is send some numbers to a couple of 7 seg displays, so I will wire a RS232 chip on a protoboard, the logic after the RS232 is not an issue, but how can I assure the data is being sent right from my linux box to the RS232 chip, the one on the protoboard? Do I have to write a C program to read the strings and then send them to the serial port?For example if I wanted to send this to the displays:


So I guess the simplest way is (Supposing I can deal with the stream so it is filtered and only display the number array) $ ifstat > /dev/ttyS0 But, how do I know if the RS232 will take them as the right characters?
