in reply to robotic laser welder

That sounds like it would be awesome code! Or at least not mundane. Pretty please with sugar and sweet stuff on top post it. Can you tell us more about the kind of interface? How was it implemented with OBSD? Were there any bugs initially that led to *ahem* interesting results? Robots rule! Please release the source!

    Unfortunately, while the code is mine to reuse, it is not mine to distribute, and I can not post it in toto. But you probably wouldn't want that ;) It's four programs, each about a thousand lines, and the math (actually, geometry) behind the path generation is hard to follow (involving three cartesian systems and two polar systems, and multiple translations between them.)

    Sorry, don't mean to suggest it's not of interest or too hard to understand, 'cause neither are probably true, but I still couldn't post it all...and being a huge open source bigot myself, it's not easy for me to say that.

      Oh how the Gods have frowned upon me on this dark day. A thirst nearly quenched, only made worse by proximity to the panacea code. A thousand years in the darkest dungeon have I been through without my beloved robotcode, and an eternity of torture and death awaits now that my one true chance for ultimate liberation through the code of robot has gone.

      I can smell the sulfur and corpses already. Decomposing jaws mouthing, "ro...bot...code. Want...robot...code." A metaphor for myself and my needs. I can feel the pain, the pure, unadulterated pain of living without the robot code. I can hear the screams of a thousand lost souls in the aether crying for robotcode.

        Were this robot code in a general sense, I would feel good in quenching such thirst. But this is robot code of the highly specialized sort, good for doing one thing, and it will never mix drinks, nor fetch your newspaper, nor find your pipe. It can't even play music by itself.

        This robot knows how to follow an edge, if mathematically defined to close enough tolerance. Definitely not cutting edge stuff. Now if we ported Perl to the mindstorms, maybe tacking on a few i960 coprocessors, that'd be something...
