[DPRG] OOPIC for controls

Subject: [DPRG] OOPIC for controls
From: Byron Williams williamsbyron at peoplepc.com
Date: Sun Nov 25 15:07:17 CST 2001

Have any of you used the OOPIC for controlling circuits? I have used this on
a small throttle control for a Briggs & Stratton engine. This thing is
great. It programs in C, Visual Basic and in Java. I was writing to let you
know that the OOPIC2 is out with some better objects built in to handle
compasses and such. No I don't work for OOPIC I have just used it a few
times but being a Visual Basic programmer I was thrilled to see a PIC that
was 100% compatible with VB. Thought you'd like to know.
