So you can view their content with any text editor. You can work with them by import ing them into your own code and invoking the ...

Re: Need help creating a bootable micro SD card!

Need really your help, otherwise I need to send it back the Pi.

Re: ADVICE: Create GUIs in Raspberry PI

You worry me. Are you really planning to write software for safety-critical life supporting devices in Python? And then allow it to be close sourced so that no one can see any problems with it? Not the latter, I think - Our (team) plans are to make public every detail of our project: from hardware ...

That wasn't what you asked.

Your conclusion is incorrect. You can originate WOL magic packets with an RPi board running the RasPiOS Buster Operating System.


etherwake and wakeonlan are possible solutions.

Off topic for this discussion, but I don't see how a compiled Shared Object library file can usefully be described as "almost, but not quite, the same thing" as a shell script.
