This is my first Flowstone tutorial of many i am currently writing & working on.
It has been difficult as these forums a geared more towards sound enthusiasts than robotics enthusiasts.
I understand know body likes hand holding for beginners, it can be frustrating, so i'll just plod along in my own time.

Anyhow please read my first draft & add any comments / mistakes or clarifications :)

**2mb uploads makes it difficult to upload this file :(

***The extension pdf is not allowed.

I'm over it!

Even as a 'sound enthusiast' that came across as very easy to follow (even the 'C'? code made sense!).
A great idea too - as you say, hardware interfacing enthusiasts are rather poorly represented so far on the forum. Kind of a chicken-and-egg situation that needs just this kind of thing to draw them into the fold and make FS a "go to" solution for the PC side of things. The stock examples from DSPr seem OK, but they're maybe a little too generic, whereas you have written a proper "application note" that is very practical.

The only suggestion I can think of is maybe a little emphasis on the linking order. The serial primitive naturally needs to build a lot of Strings out of small parts, so I think a quick example of how link order will change how the String is formed would be worthwhile. I know that the User Guide does mention it, but IIRC, it's buried quite a way in, and doesn't specifically cover String construction - it will be a vital skill that hard-core serial users will need to master very early on.

Besides that one small thing, excellent work. Looking forward to the rest of the series - maybe I will finally make that leap into hardware that I've always been putting off!

Thanks for the tutorial :)

I will have a need for interfacing with a Bluetooth device in the future. I think some of the info in this will help so thanks, saved for future reference :).

Nice. I'll have to do some studying. Arduino is heavily supported with hardware that is much cheaper. Having a way to set it up with flowstone is handy.
