Looking for live code developer in Las Vegas

We have projects that require the use of PC serial and USB ports to support external device communication. The projects are for GUI diagnostic tools that support out line of motor controllers. We would like the developer to be local so physical testing and debugging of the end application can be don...

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

I added a note to pending bug report # 14612 about serial port read not working.
This bug report is related to this issue and it looks like it is still under review.
I should get an Email if someone responds or adds to the bug report.

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

I did some file read tests as in the code below. The read from a normal file works but reading from a com port file does not follow the read defines in the same way. The memory leak is only there on LC ver 7.04 and above when reading continuous serial data. I would sure like to get some input from a...

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

I am going to play with real file reads vs comm port file reads an see what I can find.
If I can get real files to read one char at a time, then I will report the problem.
I also want to see if the memory gain issue happens on real file reads like the comm port reads.
Thanks for your help.
Tom

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

If I uncheck the search for required inclusions in the "stand alone app settings" My app saves without the rev speech dll in the stand alone application. If I ask the save to look for the external helper files, it adds the rev speech thingy to every one of my application standalone s. I have no idea...

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

I do use the beep command on a button that opens the serial port and starts the readport code that is posted here. When you use the beep in LC, the standalone app also adds the revspeech to the build and you have to remember to close it down when you exit the application. I use the "revUnloadSpeech"...

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

Thank you for the reply. Yes I am in a read loop where I read the com port for 1 until I get the start chr of "*"... Then I read in a loop to collect the serial packet of 50 characters or so until I get the end chr "#. Then I start over because the next packet will arrive in about 300 milliseconds. ...

Re: Serial communications memory use increases with time

This is the code in question. The memory usage keeps increasing as the app runs. It works the same on 7.0 through 8.0 I have tried several parse methods that all work. The leak seems to be coming from the read file for 1 part of the code. The serial packet begins with a * and ends with a #. on readP...

Serial communications memory use increases with time

I am receiving a 40 byte serial packet at 9600 baud into my live code app every second. I have used 5.5.3 through 7.1 and have observed what looks like a memory leak when the application is running and receiving serial data. The same memory increase happens in development mode and in my stand alone ...

Re: Incoming Serial data capture performance

It looks like I see the same problem with totally different code. I'm still trying to find out why the serial reads are S o o o o slow.
Move your code to rev 5.5 and you will see it fun a lot faster.
I posted my problem under the "windows" section Yesterday.

Serial communication parsing speed problem

Live code Indy... PC 3 Ghz, XP or 7 OS. In Live code 5.53 my app receives and parses a 25 byte data packet @ 9600 baud and places the result into a text field. The packet is received via the read from file... every 800 milliseconds. Everything works well when the app runs on a real XP PC and XP/PC n...
