That's ok, I was in the hope of using it as a way to communicate in a bidirectional mode with arduino.
That way I could play with it without messing aroung with programming to the nspire...
Some function counter-equivalent to the Lua (restored by fixprint) print() to read incoming characters like a read_serial(char c) would be a giant step to make bi-directional communications easier with Lua... Can you imagine a multiplayer Lua with each player on one calc? it could be achieved with that function...

What about multiplayer C? We have functions for serial read/write there ;)

Multiplayer Lua is possible, and has already been done. But the calculator needs to be connected to a computer using usb, sadly enough.

I meant Multiplayer Lua without computer only through serial between the calcs directly...
With the means to do that I could do virtually anything I could immagine being controled by the calc. Could you dream about a robot controled by a nspire? i.e. the nspire being the brain of a robot.
I could achieve that if the serial communications in both ways were easier.

If that functions could be implemented to be used from Lua it would be awesome! :D

Well, with Lua only it's possible and it's been done too, but only in os 3.0.x.
For example :



We'll see if futures OSes restore the print() function back...

As mentioned above, fixprint would make it possible to do the same thing with OS 3.1 ;)

yup :)

And also, controlling robots etc. seems very interesting :D

well... with controlling robots sending orders isn't everyting, reading data from sensors is essential also so having the print() function in Lua is only half-way to see it happening...

I thought it was brought back up (or at least partially) in OS 3.2? ???
In case you are wondering where I went, I left Omni back in 2015 to form CodeWalrus due to various reasons explained back then, but I stopped calc dev in 2016 and am now mostly active on the CW Discord server at https://discord.gg/cuZcfcF

Would it be possible to get it to work with the Navigator wireless attachment?  I know they're expensive but that would be pretty cool.  :)
They say that your signature is supposed to go here...

Actually, a usb wifi adapter would probably be better. ;)

^yep. Those happen to be quite cheap around here O.O ($10 is quite low I think)

also you might convince TI to put print() back if you tell them about the educational purposes it could have (robotics and so)

Adriweb and jimbauwens definitely talked to TI about the problem... to no avail, at the time of this writing.
