By Steven Barrett, Jason Kridner

This entire ebook presents specific fabrics for either beginner and skilled programmers utilizing all BeagleBone versions which host a robust 32-bit, super-scalar TI Sitara ARM Cortex A8 processor. Authored via Steven F. Barrett and Jason Kridner, a professional ECE educator in addition to the founding father of Beagleboard.org, respectively, the paintings can be used in a large choice of tasks from technological know-how reasonable initiatives to college classes and senior layout initiatives to first prototypes of very complicated platforms. rookies may possibly entry the ability of the "Bone" during the trouble-free Bonescript examples. pro clients may perhaps take complete good thing about the Bone's energy utilizing the underlying Linux-based working process, a number of characteristic extension forums (Capes) and a large choice of Linux group open resource libraries. The ebook comprises history concept on procedure operation coupled with many well-documented, illustrative examples. Examples for beginner clients are based on motivational, enjoyable robotic initiatives whereas complicated initiatives stick to the topic of assistive know-how and snapshot processing applications.

Example text

6 VARIABLES There are two types of variables used within a program: global variables and local variables. A global variable is available and accessible to all portions of the program. Whereas, a local variable is only known and accessible within the context where it is declared. When declaring a variable in C, the number of bits used to store the operator is also specified. 3, we provide a list of common C variable sizes. The size of other variables such as pointers, shorts, longs, etc. are contained in the compiler documentation.

This allows the “Bone” to be used in a wide variety of applications usually reserved for powerful, desktop systems. 1. The combination of computing power and small form factor allows the Bone to be used in a wide variety of projects from middle school science fair projects to senior design projects to first prototypes of very complex systems. Novice users may access the power of the Bone through the user–friendly, browser–based Bonescript environment in MS Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. Seasoned users may take full advantage of the Bone’s power using the underlying Linux–based operating system, a host of feature extension boards (Capes) and a wide variety of open source libraries.

Note that the left and right shift operations are equivalent to multiplying and dividing the variable by a power of two. The bitwise operators perform the desired operation on a bit–by–bit basis. That is, the least significant bit of the first argument is bit–wise operated with the least significant bit of the second argument and so on. Example: Given the following code segment, what will be the value of variable3 after execution? unsigned char unsigned char unsigned char variable1 = 0x73; variable2 = 0xfa; variable3; variable3 = variable1 & variable2; Answer: Variable “variable1” is declared as an eight bit unsigned char and assigned the hexadecimal value of (73)16 .
