Re: Pneumatics
Using the pnuematic system with ROBOTC is a fairly simple process; all you need to do is set up the port that the pnuematic system is attached to as a 'Digital Out' (which can be done through the 'Robot -> Motors and Sensors Setup -> Digital Sensors' tab in ROBOTC) and set the pnuematic to either a value of 1 (energized) or 0 (de-energized):

 Code:SensorValue[dgtl1] = 1;wait1Msec(3000);   SensorValue[dgtl] = 0;wait1Msec(3000);

Re: Codes
As for I'm a new student in a VEX based engineering class, I'd like to know how to code for the ultrasonic range finders, line followers, shaft encoders, servos, and the color camera. Can you guys help me on these?

Re: Pneumatics
just out of interest: there surely exists a VEX pneumatic compressor although I can't find it anywhere
- can someone show me a link to it?
- what's the maximum pressure you can achieve by it?
