if you be in msys32 console
install winpty

hello everyone,

pacman -S winpty solved my problem regarding package missing issue.

Code: Select all

esp32> help



now from last input i'm not able to give any command - not even 'help'.
in both cases linenoiseProbe() call from app_main() is always returning with -2 as it reads not morethan 4 bytes from serial in determined time. is this ok? however in putty also this same return value i am getting.

this is important to note that,
Console example is working too much fine with putty as it is accepting commands smoothly, however previous history of given commands and auto fill(suggestions) with a TAB hit is not possible in this case. and yes, upon reset 1st command execution is getting failed and printing a message of "unrecognized command".(this occurs one time on board reset only).

am i missing some sort of required settings?

thanks.

Hi Rajkumar,

I'm not able to reproduce this problem. Can you please give us some more details about your environment:

- What version of the IDF Windows environment & ESP-IDF are you using? Having to install winpty manually makes me think you may have a quite old version, as 20170330 includes this utility. Environment version 20170330 is a good choice for IDF v2.1, 20170918 is the current version of the IDF master branch (pre-V3.0). If you're using the console component then I recommend re-installing your environment.

- How are you launching the terminal that you're using to run "make"? The only supported method is via launching mingw32.exe (which will print a "MINGW32" prompt in purple on the command line). Other environments may work, but you have to make sure you are invoking a MINGW32 version of Python otherwise the serial port & terminal interactions will not work as expected.

- As mentioned in the example output you saw, the "console" component doesn't work fully with idf_monitor.py on Windows. This is due to limitations in the MSYS terminal shell.

- If you get in a situation where the terminal shell seems to not be printing characters but may be registering input, you can try typing "reset<enter>" and see if this corrects the situation.

hi ESP_Angus,

sorry for late reply, actually i didn't get the email notification for this subscribed topic.

1. yes, i am using too much old version for this msys toolchain --

Code: Select all

<Packages>
    <ApplicationName>MSYS2 32bit</ApplicationName>
    <ApplicationVersion>1.0.0</ApplicationVersion>
    <Package>

        <InstallDate>2016-08-16</InstallDate>
        <Size>204444311</Size>
    </Package>
</Packages>
i will try running this after upgradation.

2. i'm running make in
C:\msys32\msys2_shell(windows command script)

3. yeah, i think, msys teminal shell is the limitation for limited working of this console example code.

4. i tried using reset command but this is not working.

angus, one thing i noticed is,
whatever commands i give after running idf_monitor.py script,
all commands are buffered in and hence stored internally and as soon as i terminate the console process(with ctrl+C) all the enter(newline) separated commands(or text) gets executed one by one in sequential manner.
as per my expectation this commands should go directly on uart and hence to the device rather than getting buffered.

in initialize_console() itself at the beginning we are disabling buffering in stdin and stdout stream(i suppose) by
setvbuf(stdin, NULL, _IONBF, 0);
setvbuf(stdout, NULL, _IONBF, 0);
isn't this enough?
or
can i use any other settings to stop this buffering?

and as i always feel, many thanking to you ESP_Angus, for your quick and elaborated response.

regards.
Regards,
Rajkumar M. Patel

This buffering is a problem with MINGW32 Python when running in the MINGW32 terminal, not with the firmware.

Using Putty is the best solution for now. We're looking to find a better way around this in the future.

yes ESP_Angus,
surely there was nothing wrong with the firmware and i've realized this thing from your former post only.

i'll try running console on , your suggested, latest msys environment. will let you know if i still get any issues -- however, chances would be rare. :D

thanks a lot, Angus. :)
