I DO like my little (not so simple any more) Serial Terminal described elsewhere in the blog – but there is always someone, somewhere that’s doing the same thing or better and so it was that this morning I discovered THIS. http://www.esp8266.com/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=882
I’ve only given it the briefest of tests but it seems to work at treat, at least on Windows 8.1 and the colour-coding is lovely. It’s worth a look. It also confirmed that it’s not my editor stopping callbacks working in LUA files.
I tested the exact same thing in this new terminal which uses a completely different way to store files to the way I do it – and exactly the same result… my code works when run live and not when run from a LUA file. I guess I’m in Zeroday’s hands now as I can’t think of anything else to try.
