      #!/usr/bin/perl -w is not something you should use. Specifically the -w in there will enable warnings for ALL code, which can include modules which were expressly written to run correctly without warnings (like Coro).

Not sure I follow your argument. I want warnings turned on. It has saved my butt many a time and yes I'm aware of the drawbacks.

    [shmem]: well finally.
    [stevieb]: nice! I just finished a GPS "take me home" device last week, and did a bunch of software updates to it yesterday. I also created a pseudo chip with an Arduino to simulate an IC, where it responds to register read/writes over the I2C bus...
    [stevieb]: ...from an I2C master. It's ugly and there are many changes I'm going to make, but I had not done anything like it before. It's designed for my RPi:: automated test platform; a system that does CI on *all* my RPi modules.
    [shmem]: pseudo chip?
    [stevieb]: well, what happens is the Arduino 'listens' for requests r/w, and does the appropriate thing when it's interrupted based on the 'register' address sent in. It's ugly as it was my first attempt, but I've got great new ideas I'm just sitting.
    [stevieb]: ...down to implement now. Here's the sketch as it currently sits
    [shmem]: well I use I2C and SPI and stuff, but creating a pseudo chip looks to me like lot of indirection and memory clutter... not?
    [choroba]: Are you going to use the device soon? Related to your comment about "not having much time to do a lot of coding"...
    [stevieb]: sure, but I'm just learning ;) I consider it practice to get a good understanding of what goes on *after* an I2C/SPI request is made
    [shmem]: ah ok. Gonna read that. but now....
