Getting Started with Galil and C++ Programming

Programming the Galil motion controller from a high level language such as C or C++ can be overwhelming at first glance, but upon closer inspection – it is actually very straightforward. This article shows how to compile the “Hello World” type of application that is included in the GalilTools installation and then goes on to more advanced topics of how to create a new C++ Class specific to your motion control application.

    This actually only covers the procedure using Visual Studio, if you are using some other IDE this won’t work.
    Is there a way to link to Galil1.dll without Visual Studio?

    Thanks.

    Correct – this is for Visual Studio (or the free version – Visual C++ 2010 Express). There’s nothing inherent in the code that will prevent it from working on other IDE’s – you’ll have to check the IDE’s documentation on how to link and compile.
