2 Replies and 4617 Views Lolo command to make a directory or copy recursive  4617  2 Started by  scobb I'm looking for a way to copy a directory hierarchy from a Compact FLASH card to a YAFFS partition on the device from lolo. This does not seem to be possible, 1) "cp" won't copy a directory (recursive or otherwise) 2) mkdir is not implemented, so I can't do it by hand. Is there a way to mkdir or cp recursively Thanks, Steve

10 Replies and 2796 Views Simple Interrupt Implementation  2796  10 Started by  ftiernan I 'd like to attach an optical encoder to my project and would like to use the pre-established interrupts INT2 (Port F bit 2) and INT1 (Port F bit 1) on the LH7A400 board. I can set up the physical interrupts on the board and create a thread and an s/w 'event' to trigger the thread but am not sure how to link my s/w 'event' to the physical interrupt that will be triggered by the encoder when it is turned. I know that the physical interrupt will be generated but how to communicate this to my prog...
