Post subject:  RobotC IO on host computer?

Hey I'm just wondering if I could use RobotC to store information on my computer. I know that I cannot read/write files on the cortex, but can I read/write files on the host computer using RobotC?

Any response would be greatly appreciated.

Thank you.

What type of information exactly do you wish to store on the computer? You can write data that is collected by a robot (sensor values, variable data, etc) to the Debug Stream, which can then be copied and pasted into another file (such as a text document, spreadsheet, etc). If using the spreadsheet method, you will need to make sure that you format the debug stream correctly; you can find more information on how to do this in the link above (there is a tutorial that was written by Dexter Industries that is also worth a good look, which is also linked to at the top of the wiki page).

I wanted to have an automatic way to store the information from the robot's sensor values, variable data, etc. onto a file on my computer so that an external program could then interpret these values. I know I could copy and paste the values from the debug stream, but I am going to be running a large array of tests, and so copying and pasting from the debug stream and manually creating a new file would be quite cumbersome.

Is it possible to read/write data on the host computer? I tried using iostream, fstream, and stdio, but they all don't work so i'm assuming not, but is there any sort of workaround that I could do besides manually copying and pasting?

You could use RobotC to create a file (.txt?) which you can access later using built-in RobotC functions.

EDIT: Never mind, that's an NXT link :P

The example on ( ... cess#Close) is for the NXT. Is it possible to have similar I/O for the VEX Cortex?
