Baby steps for the future – Hello world

As I’ve might have mentioned in the past.  Arduino was not intended to be “my holy grail” it was a fast implementation (should have been fast at least :)) towards a “better tomorrow”.

Today I’ve made my first baby step towards that future.

#include <iostream>
#include <stdio.h>

using namespace std;

int main() {
unsigned char test = 0;
cout << "!!!Hello World from eclipse!!!" << endl;
while (true) {
printf("count is: %u\n",test);
return 0;

This is my first compiled code for the BeagleBone black that will one day (hopefully), drive my pit displays. this small device (no bigger then an arduino Uno) packs quite a punch with it’s 1Ghz processor and 512MB of RAM (along with an Ethernet port). in my vision, I imagine a device that will get the Falcon SharedMem over the network. And will do everything it needs, draw displays, drive gauges and blink away LEDs. all of that without the annoying bottle neck of serial communication. as fast as the CPU can drive the hardware.

I will have one of those Beaglebone post once in a while,
probably after I’ve done something that made me smile.. like this one. I had that beagle laying around for over a year now, waiting for the time to be right for it to show it’s face 🙂
