radio function

Post by DPaul » Tue Mar 19, 2019 9:59 am

Hi,

I have a setup where a number of microbits send info to a central microbit using the radio() function.

I keep the receiving (central) microbit attached to the development computer, using the Mu editor,
where i can check the "files" on the Microbit.

Question: when i check the files via MU on the microbit, this seems to "freeze" the program on the receiving (central)
microbit.

Is this a normal effect , or should i look elsewhere ?

thx,
Paul

The command `ufs` (microfs), which mu uses or simulates. Takes place in a REPL prompt and runs a command on the microbit to push data up the serial cable.
Mu editor has an up coming feature plot
You can run a program and monitor its output. I'm unsure when the authors intend to release this feature.
For now there is no way to monitor the filesystem on the microbit from a pc and keep the program running on the microbit.
