New Smartsocket version 2 files uploaded
- A bugfix this time, and some clarification of the documentation.
Files 'SmartV2' are the most recent files and are the only versions
of useable code in the files section now.
The bug which was brought to my attention was the improper handling
of the underscore character which produced unpredictable results.
The character command is still the same '$B7U' but with two further
options...placing a '1' at the position you wish the underscore to
come on at sets the underscore on, and a 0 sets it to be off.
So for example, $B7U1xxx0x1xx sets the underscore on in positions 1
and 7, and off at position 5.
The underscore does not appear immediately but is latched for the
next character transition, inheriting the same transition effect as
the new character.
The documentation has 'B7971 smart sockets.doc' has also been
updated to reflect this change, and now mentions that all characters
between 0 and 126 can be programmed as UDC's
Thanks again to John Smout for his awareness, and for raising mine !
