How to integrate C++ API in to custom app to use Tic 36v4


I am planning to use the Tic 36v4 stepper motor driver with my custom c++ app which is written using the toolkit on macOS.
I see the c++ api example you so generously supplied. Pololu - 12.11. Example code using the C++ API

But it says:

If you have compiled the Tic software from source and installed it on a Unix-like system (including MSYS2 on Windows), and copied the code below to a file named code.cpp , you should be able to compile the code below by running this command in a shell:

Do you know what steps need to be taken to integrate your API calls in to a macOS c++ app?

I did download and run the pololu-tic-1.8.1-macos.pkg

I know I could use a USB to Serial adapter and connect to the Tic via the RX TX pins, but I am hoping to take advantage of all the features your API offers.

Thank you,

Hello, Stephan.

For the purposes of those instructions, macOS is a Unix-like operating system. The Tic software source code comes with a file named with macOS-specific instructions that help you compile and install the software.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions.

Thank you.

The driver arrived and it works with the Pololu Tic Stepper Motor Controller but I have problems compiling the Pololu-tic-software has this been tested on a macOS M1 ? · Issue #8 · pololu/pololu-tic-software · GitHub which I assume I need in order to then call it from my custom c++ app.

Can you help?
Thank you so much.
