It might interest your readers that AdaCore, the folks
that develop the Ada part of gcc, have produced a version
that targets the LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT. Here is their
"GNAT for LEGO MINDSTORMS NXT is a GPL port for the GNAT compilation
system to the LEGO NXT robotic platform, designed to offer an
educational platform for teaching and learning embedded systems
It includes :
- GNAT GPL edition targeting the LEGO MINDSTOMS NXT Platform
- Bindings to nxtOSEK, an open, real-time operating system providing
facilities for real-time and concurrent systems
- Bindings to access MINDSTORMS hardware (processor, sensors and
motors), including Bluetooth
- Getting Started material, examples of applications which can be used
as teaching material
For more information, please visit :
GNAT GPL for LEGO MINDSTORMS can be downloaded from the "Download"
section on https://libre.adacore.com."
I haven't tried it, but it looks very interesting.
