On your Linux distribution you'll want to verify that you have the following additional packages:
The self installing archive simplifies the installation of SIMPL and the SIMPL-Arduino extension into a single install script. This installation will be done in /tmp and will allow you to run the SIMPL unit test as a temporary demo. If you are satisfied and wish to make this SIMPL installation permanent you will be offered that option.
Unfortunately, it is difficult to automate the final steps in the SIMPL-Arduino installation in a seamless manner, so this is left to be done manually (see readme.arduino).
The steps are as follows:
NOTE: If you wish to examine this install script before running it
you can simply edit arduinosimpl.sh. The installer script is contained in
the first part up until the line:
If all your code installed and built correctly using the procedure above you should be able to see a list of tests associated with SIMPL tools.
From that list of tests you can select the first SIMPL unit test
at the installer script prompt.
If you are successful the test should run.
The SIMPL-Arduino stuff will be installed in the SIMPL code tree. This code tree lives at $SIMPL_HOME (eg. /home/simpl) which you get to choose in the above script.
Inside $SIMPL_HOME/docs there is a readme.arduino file which describes how to configure the SIMPL-Arduino library.
Inside this package there are two examples.
Have fun. Hope you enjoy SIMPL-Arduino programming.
