usage

Listen for a message and type it when it arrives:

cc1101_init rf> type

Send a test message:

cc1101_init s" Hello from CC1101" >rf

todo

  • Can we do single byte packets for remote control use? (I/O redirection)
  • Context wrappers [PDF] would be even better!
  • A flexible but compact way to change settings
  • Separate config handling words. Perhaps in a separate file wrapped in markers so we won't need to keep it in flash.
  • Figure out what the default configuration is so we can delete some of the register map and conserve flash space.
  • Read from and write to a buffer instead of using emit
  • Interrupts
  • Write a range tester
  • Consistent, canonical names for the Forth words
  • Add some basic legal advice to avoid visits from the FCC!
