Serial Communication Library for A-Star



Is there a library for the A-Star similar to the Orangutan’s serial port communication library? https://www.pololu.com/docs/0J18/10

Especially that with functions for circular buffers etc.




We do not have a version of the Orangutan Serial Port Communication library for the A-Star programmable controllers. As stated in the section you linked, the Arduino environment has its own serial functions, so you could use those built-in Arduino functions to implement a circular buffer in your program. For more information about the Arduino’s Serial library and its functions, see the “Serial” page on the Arduino’s website. Also, you might find it helpful to look at the circular byte buffer implementation for Arduino example under the “Data Structures and Algorithms” section of the “Libraries for Arduino” page (on the Arduino’s website).
