I would also like to see a DSP coding compo!
such a competition, like the graphics demo compo Steven Craft suggested, would be nice but I doubt that it will have many entries (then again I am new to the Pandora but my impression so far is that there are not many graphics/demo programmers around here. at least I have not seen any original Pandora demos, yet. There's a port of one (very old) MFX demo, though.)Wouldn't it make sense to have a DSP coding competition now to keep te momentum?
wait a sec what do you mean by "almost" ? anything vital missing ? doesn't it work ?bsp almost has a really usable toolchain that makes compiling new DSP binaries really easy.
Nothing vital, it works well, except it still needs to compile the entire thing, new modules with the old, and integrating one's own code into the existing stuff is (easy but) not trivial.Once the overlay is working perfectly (or is it already? I wasn't really paying attention to updates this weekend, just a second... ok, looks like you did get it working well a few days ago, good job, so everything I'm saying may be completely out of date right now ) a perfectly usable toolchain will let you write code with a sufficiently generic makefile that it just works, user filling in required environment variables for the libraries and binaries first, of course.wait a sec what do you mean by "almost" ? anything vital missing ? doesn't it work ?
This and do you think that there are enough people here who would participate in that kind of competition ?The downside of this sort of competition is there'd be a lot of overlap in work
Could you please dial down the hype a little? Running a toy fractal benchmark that wasn't particularly well optimized for the CPU and using that to make blanket statements that the DSP is faster is way over the top. You're going to give people the wrong idea and create a lot of new pressure from newbs to start moving everything to the DSP.oh, nothing. just the second main processor in the Pandora that's been laying dormant for the last years but is faster and more power efficient than the main processor (when not idle). just pretend it does not exist
