What happened here?
This question got moved from the end of a thread dating back to 2012 to this new thread. But the responses there did not move with it.
So my incredibly valuable contribution is lost?
For the record, it should be the second post, as a reply to zeilotech's question.
So all posts before zeilotech are gone, and my reply after that, and I think another one.
Edit: I reported this to the mods because I find it strange that posts disappear.
your "invaluable post" was not lost, its still on this forum, but in the 2012 thread.....

Python has more support than C. Almost every piece of hardware for the Pi comes with a Python library to support it. Supplier support for C is sometimes available, supplier support for other languages seems to be non-existent.
If you like to write your own C driver software there are the GPIO libraries (wiringPi, PIGPIO and BCM2835). Especially wiringPi supports some often used devices "out of the box", wiringPi and PIGPIO are installed by default in Raspbian.
With a bit of luck you can find drivers written by users in C or C++ on Github or similar places.
What happened is that I split off posts starting at the wrong point in the thread and several older parts (but from 2018) stuck with the original thread from 2012, which is here:
it happens when a user replies to an ancient thread that should have been locked long ago.
please don't necro old threads, but start a new one, so that moderators do not have to jump through hoops.
