C Programming newbie language barrier problem
I am new to C programming, have been working in electrical engineering for the last 8/9 years but have never had to touched C programming.
I have just been put on a course through work and have been thrown in at the deep end to say the least, or at least thats what it feels like to me.
Basically im working on a project having had no experience. Im hoping that maybe other more experienced members and programmers might be able to instill some of there knowledge into me. I have purchased a book, watched hours of online tutorials but i have hit a brick wall. The wall being that i know what i want my equipment to do but i dont know how to write it in code to tell it what to do. And assistance or advice would be much appreciated.
I have attempted using timers, call back functions, mutual exclusions, semaphores and basics like printf and scanf. Individually they seem ok but putting them into practice and working together i get lost in translation.
I am using the following gear (just to offer a background)
A separate target which is pentium based
I have to install vxworks on to a floppy and let the target boot from the floppy that will then control my project.
I hope I have described this correctly at the moment it all seems a little much.
Anyway I look forward to chatting with you.
