I’m new to this whole game, but I’ve done C\C++ development before. I’m awaiting the arrival of my device (the Fastrack Supreme 20) and am currently designing some software for it. I came across a document that said that LUA couldn’t do file I/O because it has no file structure (luaw-refman.pdf p.12) and I was hoping to confirm this wasn’t the case when using a C\C++ compiled program. So I wanted to ask if file I/O is possible, and if it is an API call or standard C calls. If it’s API some example code would be appreciated.
The other question I had, seeing as how I’m eager to get started and waiting for my device, is whether an emulator exists for the devices/OS. I know there is a terminal emulator. I’m able to compile the example programs, but have been unable to test them. My understanding from what I’ve read thus far is I need to transfer the program to the device and use remote monitoring tools to debug the program. Again any help/clarification would be appreciated.
