Good day everyone, this is my first post regarding this little tiny but handy device.
Recently in my work it has come to our attention the power that packs the Raspberry Pi and the fact that it can use an UART like the RS232.
The thing is, where are completely newbies regarding linux, all our environments have been in windows and visual basic (we are a very small group of guys that serve automation purposes).
So, having said all of this our questions goes more or less like this:
Is there an example of data acquisition through rs232 for raspberry?
Which is the best way to save acquisitions into a txt file? say... 100 acquisitions create a new txt file?
I myself have a bit of experience with ubuntu and the ps3 but my knowledge goes only as far as installing programs and the os itself, my knowledge in programming is mostly C, Basic and Visual Basic, we want to try python for the easy to learn curve that it apparently has.
Please note that I'm not exactly asking for the code but rather... where to start, for example how to compile phyton examples and how to run them into the raspberry, in this very case the RS232 is essential for this.
Thank you very much in advance for all your help, we really appreciate it.
