c++ VS. python: hardware control.
Posted on 2007-07-20
my electronics class almost touched using computer to control hardware, but we ran out of time. it was to be powered by and controlled through a COM port (like the old mouse port, remember?) and DC motors and lights could be operated through that.
my question is though, the python.org headline picture shows a lot of electronics and stuff, I am wondering though, is c++ better at controlling "simple" stuff like DC motors , or maybe today python can do some of those as well?
I'd love to initiate hardware controls from python than c++ ( and i don't care if I am not as powerful, it's just easier to learn)
I guess my question is actually, how to start hardware stuff with python, or rather, how to start hardware design.
