Linda periodic hidpoll problem

Recommended Posts


When looking in the Linda default program and especially in hidpoll function, I have question.


When lookin for the periodic event timer, it is every 20 ms. It calls hidpoll function.

but looking to this function :


function hidPoll ()
    count = count + 1

    -- once a second
    if count % 40 == 0 then
        TimerOneSec ()
        count = 0
        count10 = count10 + 1



There is a problem becaus once second occures every 50 incrementation of count not 40 !!!!!!


Is there a problem or I am in wrong ?


For me , TimerOnSec is called every 800ms and not 1sec

You are correct in your assumption. However, extension testing showed that the interrupts were no producing a consistent one second interval. Using 40 instead 50 compensates for this discrepancy. Thank you for your interest.
