Robots.net seems to be one of the most active robot sites on the net and the whole concept seems to be working very well in joining enthusiasts worldwide. Thanks to all the developers of this site!
I am busy getting myself up to date with C++ programming which seems an ideal language to use on a PC based robot like the MACH2001.
I discovered an article on the net via Linux links and the address is http://guides.oernii.sk/c++/htm/ch06.htm
Just substitute the ch06.htm for the day (1 to 21). I did a course on C++ many years ago and it was always a dark area for me until I discovered this document. I have reached day 7 in three days! One of the guys here said he has not even reached this level in two years!
