Re: I need to read input from the user console

Thanks for that link, fly...that's a good-looking library. Any idea if I can use my msys2 window for terminal input. As it is, printf() output is directed to it. If necessary, I could look into attaching an FTDI cable to my esp32 to give me a second UART connection (I assume the chip supports at lea...

Re: I need to read input from the user console

Thanks, Mr. Kolban. So, am I correct in inferring from another code snippet I saw that an fgetc() will return a 0xff if no data was read?

I need to read input from the user console

Hi, all - Thanks to the help of people here, I've gotten the WiFi software working on my esp32. I'm at the point where my next task is to remove my hard-coded password to my access point from my program. So...I think it's time to learn how to read input from the console. I did a little online search...

Re: problem trying to use Qt as my IDE

That's good information. What did you use as programming/debugging tools with that?

Re: problem trying to use Qt as my IDE

Hi Mr. Kolban - Thanks for the quick reply. I'll take your advice and do that with a hello world example, though I'm not sure I know how to set an environment variable in msys2. The set command doesn't seem to work as it does in a DOS shell. EDIT: I got this to work with: $ V=1 $ export V Regarding ...

problem trying to use Qt as my IDE

Hi all - I'm trying to get the mingw toolchain working from Qt, because I really like Qt and don't have an alternative for an IDE (that I know of). Compilations are going OK, but at link time I get a lot of unresolved references. The first one I encountered was esp_wifi_scan_get_ap_records, which I ...

Re: I need an IDE for my development

Very interesting. According to http://openocd.org/doc/html/Debug-Adapter-Hardware.html my Atmel ICE won't work (not too surprising, I guess). The ESP-WROVER-KIT V3 claims to have built in JTAG support, but I don't understand how I'd connect to it (FTDI cable, perhaps?) for the purpose of JTAG progra...

Re: I need an IDE for my development

Hi kolban - thanks for the reply. As it happens, I have a JTAG programmer (an Atmel ICE) at my disposal. I'll look to see if the documentation shows a pin map that would correspond to the esp32. So do I understand you correctly that if I use JTAG, I won't need a program like gdbserver on the esp32? ...

I need an IDE for my development

I guess I'm set in my ways, but I really need a decent IDE in order to be productive. I greatly favor Qt Creator (though I realize it's for building/debugging only); has anyone on the forum managed to get the toolchain working with Creator? Does freeRTOS have the equivalent of a gdbserver that would...

Re: issue with building a wifi example

ESP_igrr - thanks. I remembered that shortly after I posted, but since I'm new to the forum my posts have to be approved before they appear, so I couldn't edit my question. Thanks. ESP_Sprite - I'm reasonably comfortable working in a Linux environment. Most important to me is which host is likely to...
