I am now developing Version 1.30 of RTM_TimerCalc.
This effort will address the following issues;
- Locale problems (aka culture in VB.Net) causing commas to appear where periods belong in generated C++ Code
- External Input-Pin clocking (InPin) of either Timer-1 (Nano, Uno) or Timer-5 (Mega 2560).
- Change in display of Scientific Notation (lower case e instead of current upper case E).
Other improvements will be made regarding error amounts and max-min frequencies you can reach.
Arduino Timer Interval Features
Because we can now use the External InPin (my way to say External Input Pin) on Timers 1 and 5, its quite doable to create Timers that take Minutes and even Hours to complete a single cycle. With a Nano or Uno, you'd likely need an external clock of (say 1 Hz) to trigger Timer1. But with a Mega 2560, its easy to generate a 1 Second pulse (Timers 1,3 or 4) and route it to the InPin of Timer5. This means a 24 Hour Timer is easy to create without relying on Delay or milliSec to get the job done.
I will -likely- not be trying to fix flaws called out for Wine operation under Linux (sorry).
Once finished (and tested), I expect the release to be sometime in Q1 2021.
