36368Re: [SeattleRobotics] Processing Language for Robotics?
- Jun 2, 2008Right, it is fundamentally Java. I think the main advantages are
convenience and popularity: a novice can download and run it, write a single
line of code like 'rect(10,10,5,5)', hit the run button and see immediate
visual results. And beyond that there are a lot of people familiar with it
or Wiring or even standard Java to go to for help. It's great for teaching
and learning, or prototyping- though maybe not larger complex projects, or
anything that can't make much use of generating visuals.
