Memory share between PowerPMAC Script Language and application on Linux


Recommended Posts



I would like to know if there is a way to share variables (e.g. Global Variables) between PowerPMAC Script Language and embedded Linux on controller.


Actually, I was unsuccessfully trying to create a C program and compile it with GCC to access the content of a Global Variable address as the example as follows:



int main()
 int * pointer;

 pointer = 0xa9304b20;

 printf("%d\n", *pointer);

 return 0;






The program crashed by Segmentation Fault error and I'm searching for new ways to access these variables on the memory by Linux.

This would be very complicated if the program is compiled outside of the IDE.


This could be done easily with a background C Application ("C Language" -> "Background Programs" -> "capp1"). Just declare a gobal variable in script and use it as a double in C. Printf statements will be visible over SSH.


To call the program.

From IDE Terminal/GPASCII:
system /var/ftp/usrflash/Project/C\ Language/Background\ Programs/capp1.out
From Script PLCs/Motion Programs:
system "/var/ftp/usrflash/Project/C\ Language/Background\ Programs/capp1.out“
