CtrlTerm Ports

Delphi Win32 - CtrlTerm-Delphi-122513.zip 136 KB
Use this if you have Embarcadero Delphi.  If you are interested in Delphi serial and winsock communications you might want to check out AsyncPro.  Also take a look at the very nice SourceForge project using AsyncPro: RealTerm: Serial/TCP Terminal

The files below were added for testing GNUroot (see this page for more details). A reason for doing this might be for using a simple Linux program to communicate with a wireless DAQ device.

On 14 May 2014 added three console programs (i386-win32, i386-linux, arm-linux) where CtrlTerm uses Free Vision (testapp is also included).

On 20 May 2014 added three zips (i386-win32, i386-linux, arm-linux) that now use Free Pascal 2.6.4 and also can compile the textmode IDE.  Everything seems to work except that on arm-linux CtrlTerm fails to compile.

New! On 26 May 2014 added three zips (i386-win32, i386-linux, arm-linux) that use Free Pascal 2.6.2 (so arm-linux works) but the IDE source code is from 2.6.4 (which seems to work).



In January 2014 I set out to port CtrlTerm to a Java program (to run on i386 PCs) with the hope that the Java program will be easy to convert to Android.  Here are a few of my notes.  I hope they might be of help to others.

I loaded IntelliJ IDEA Community Edition 13.0.1 on my Ubuntu 12.04 LTS (i386) but it refused to start with OpenJDK, so I installed Oracle Java 7.  IntelliJ IDEA seems like a good IDE, especially since Google has announced that Android Studio is the new official Android IDE.  I installed the Pascal plugin which I hope to spend more time with in the future.

I installed the smallest NetBeans Java SE IDE 7.4 and found this project (also see blog) that has GUI code and serial (RXTX) support.  This compiles and works, though it doesn't support TCP/IP like CtrlTerm.

I've also loaded the latest versions of Eclipse and Processing.

This is a lot more complex than downloading the CtrlTerm 3-4 MB zip (with compiler and about everything) so it will be interesting to see how simple this all can be made. Smart Mobile Studio might be simpler? If you have suggestions they would be welcomed!

This page has a few links for Processing and Arduino.
