Hi. I need to create a C/C++ program that can send and receive information to Sparki over bluetooth. Handling the Sparki side of things looks pretty straightforward from the code examples. However, I’m unsure of a good place to start on the computer side of things. Basically, I just need to be able to send characters from the computer to Sparki wirelessly and vise-versa.
Will I need a special C/C++ library on the computer to handle the serial commands? Is there a recommendation for a simple, portable one? Any code examples would be extremely helpful if someone has already succeeded with this.
Some additional info that may be helpful:
- I have some C++ programming experience, but none with serial communications specifically.
- The main computer I need it to run on is Windows 10, though I would prefer a portable solution if practical.
- CodeBlocks is my preferred IDE with minGW as my compiler.
Thanks for the help.
