Re: Languages

This one looks interesting https://flix.dev/#/ Will a Java Virtual Machine run in Ultibo? FPC can make java byte code :o http://wiki.freepascal.org/FPC_JVM https://www.freepascal.org/~michael/articles/fpcjvm/fpcjvm.pdf That would mean I need a JVM for baremetal? Is there a JVM written in Free Pascal.

Re: Languages

Prolog is old but looks like it is common for AI to use it to analyze text. And there are versions of the old Pascal interpreters written in newer Pascal. https://spivey.oriel.ox.ac.uk/corner/PicoProlog http://troydm.github.io/blog/2014/01/26/making-30-years-old-pascal-code-run-again/ A multiparadig...

Re: Ultibo game programming

This compiled and ran clean on Windows. https://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,44908.0.html Next try Linux and Raspbian ;) Apparently it does not use any other libraries except LCL.

Re: Camera, SMI, JPEG

Long time ago I used a cpu clock as a camera chip clock. i2c comms commands and GPIO pins as triggers to hardware DMA. Vsync out from the camera triggers the DMA capture cycle. You can hold the sensor in reset until everything is setup. I have used GPIO4 as a GPCLK0 output on Pi's, even the original...
