If you make the C++ program respond to an IP address visible to your machine, yes it's doable. Just connect to that address.


EDIT: er wait the program is on another machine? Screw that, you're basically asking for the most common server operation in existence. Just make sure there's an address to connect to and you're set.

Wait a second, is this related to a hat device or such? Because it sounds like 0-8 is what the device is returning (it is mentioned it's driver code, and I recall hats being returned as angles). That'd explain why the values can't be changed.


In this case yeah, a look-up table sounds like the best approach.

Ouch, no wonder so many programmers I know are upset when they can't find English keyboards (although one could change the layout in the operating system in theory). I probably would not leave the Spanish layout though just because of how many symbols are present (especially for third and fourth level under Ubuntu, e.g. I can type ↑↓←→ directly this way).


In Spanish { } [ ] are just two keys though (altgr + some key that happens to be above it). Three keys suck and should be reserved for uncommon symbols x_x;

On some keyboard layouts some of those characters are still hard to type and can hurt the hands in the long term (I don't think any programmer ever bothers with those for that purpose, though).

In Topic: Pronounciation of GUI

I though english speakers spelled the vowels like the letters, and THUS why youd need the freak show of vowel binding to create a sound of a simple vowel. Why not just use the vowel to describe it..?



Pretty much the whole reason, English pronunciation evolved while writing was getting solidified, resulting in written forms differing from the pronounced forms. Worse now that each region has its own way to pronounce vowels, and if you think that's bad, some words change pronunciation depending on their meaning, even if they're written the same way /o\ (can't find the link explaining this right now)


And this is why I'll never be able to pronounce anything in English correctly. That my Japanese pronunciation is much better should say something (it helps that every sound in Japanese is also present in Spanish, though...).
