I am relatively new to Linux and programming . I want to Programm digital gauges for my car , i have a tuning ECU in that i can read out via Serial port to USB . The basic code to read all the values out i already got ( VB script in excel that polls the sensors found here : http://kaele.com/~kashima/car/pfcadp/FCLoggerFD3S.xls)
I would like to display the read out Values in Analogue gauges and make it a embeded linux program.
What language should i use to do this ? My main concern is how to make it estetically pleasing , so it looks like OEM gauges ?
