Topic: infocast graphics programming
Based on what I have read here and in a few blogs, the chumby/infocast is an excellent linux system for the current best buy price (~$80), but I have one question: I want to use infocasts in my process control system. The internet would not be involved. Based on what i have read here, I should be able to use the USB port to gather data from my system, and install nano-x so i can use a C program to draw plots and text on the screen.
In other words, I would not use the "chumby" system at all, in its usual sense. Are there any flaws in my plan? I believe Duane told someone that the chumby had no native windowing capability, or something like that, and my impression is that Flash is used exclusively for screen content, but with nano-X I should be able to draw graphics and text without involving Flash, right?
Thanks in advance for any replies
