EMC: 03cmorley 07TRUNK * 10emc2/src/hal/classicladder/ (classicladder.c classicladder.h):
EMC: add new option to be able to change path/filename after loading a program.
EMC: Useful for an external configuration program to load a sample ladder program
EMC: from one place and having it saved in another, without user intervention. Also
EMC: some changes for modbus slave option.

[Global Notice] Hi all, It would appear one of our US client servers have fallen off the edge of the discwo^H^H^H^H^H^Hinternet and all but vanished! We're looking into the issue now and hope to have it back soon. Affected users ~3K. Apologies for the inconvenience and thank you for flying freenode!
hmm I have a GS2 VFD with lights on sitting on my desk hint hint SWPadnos
Hey john you got your vfd hooked up now?
I was just working up a config to test it with
hmm I dont' see the pins showing up
jepler: like your schedule
looks good to me too... what would be required to move to 8.04 lyx?
BigJohnT: have to create a package on 6.06 that knows how to translate the lyx files to the 6.06 format (the software exists, I just have to put it in a .deb package for 6.06)
and I have to modify the makefiles so that they perform that translation in the course of making the html documentation
basically, I just have to work on it for a weekend day
and hope there are no issues I haven't anticipated
otoh, no real advantage for 2.3.x
except that it gets postponed a bit
alex_joni: that's true; at this point I think almost anyone who's going to edit docs for 2.3.x has already set up the 6.06 environment required
that would be probably the lowest thing on my list to try to do before 2.3...
it's not an issue here I have a 6.06 machine just for that
and joints_axes should _definately_ stay out of 2.3
I mean I started doing that, but it will probably take a lot of effort still to get it right
(right now it starts up a scara config, but that's about it .. the rest is a mess :D)
yea, I have GS2 VFD pins
John I looked in the manual for your VFD to see about using CL with it. I have to add some options I think to CL as the vfd doesn't use 8 N 1 settings for serial port.
jepler: thanks for doing htat
Chris, I'm looking
looks like I can configure it to just about any communication protocol
chester88: do I need classicladder to communicate with the GS2?
BigJohnT: there's a driver specific to the gs2 that SWPadnos wrote, at least on TRUNK
yes, that is what I'
in principle classicladder is another choice
m attempting to connect
if you're using that then it should not be necessary to involve classicladder
my impression anyway
Oh well if you can do 8 N 1 then I can make a sample program for you. You can use SWPadnos program or classicladder (modbus is supported in Cl in trunk of course).
I'll test it with both so I can add the examples to the manual
hmm it does 8N2 not 8N1
all the 8 bit frames are 11 characters
It will do 8N2, 8E1, 8O1 and the same for 7bits
Now Chris prays it works lol. Dave Keeton has used MODBUS with success. Yes thats what the manual said. CL currently only does 8 N 1 and my testing with anything else bombed.
EMC: 03bigjohnt 07TRUNK * 10emc2/docs/src/hal/basic_hal.lyx: or2 is not a userspace component what was I thinking
I'll test SWPadnos then if I can figure out what to connect to what :)
use him all up, but leave some
you plug him in and I'll test him
where is my megger
off to bed (for real now), good night all
well programming the GS2 is a breeze...
