Hello as anyone got the FreeIMU library to port to the Mpide environment? I been working on this but stuck with the arduino.h library. Is my understanding correct that this makes the libraries arduino dependent? Is there a work around the arduino.h library? Any points to solution or thoughts would be greatly appreciated ... Many thanks in advance.

#include "Arduino.h"


#include "WProgram.h"

Thank you avenue33, that solved that problem on to the next of setting the BYTE values correct in the ADXL345.h library ... It's always the attention to details between the different processors that catch me... Thanks again... Cheers, Steve

You're welcome :)

Going from Arduino to chipKIT faces two difficulties:

Enjoy ;)

Could we add the lib to the mpide distribution?

Not really. It's not one of the core libraries of the system, but a library for an external third party device. Core libraries are things like serial, Wire, SPI, etc - things that communicate with external devices. We can't include libraries for each and every device under the sun - it's both too much work and it'll just end up in a big mess of libraries that we'd have to support and keep updated.

By all means set up your own distribution system - maybe on github - for the modified library and we'll include it in any lists of libraries we have control over.

Makes sence.

Trying to get the comilier going on the posted freeIMU lib. The compiler doent like it even after changing the #include as prior stated.

Is a PIC32 port available?
