We have a shell license for our groov, and we would like to embed a program on the groov itself that is capable of accessing and updating strategy variable values and accessing IO Point values.
The only software development kit that I can find from OPTO22 that advertises that it is able to access strategy variables is the .NET Controller Software Development Kit for groov EPIC and SNAP PAC. I cannot find a C++ or Java version of this SDK.
Since Mono does not appear to be installed on the groov, and this SDK does not have a C++ or Java version that we can run on a groov, what is the recommended way build and run programs on a groov that can access strategy variables?
- To use the C or C++ compiler on the groov, we would need to have a C++ version of the PAC_DEV_CONTROLLER SDK, but does this exist? We could also write our app in Java. (The groov supports Java.) But I cannot find a Java version of this SDK either
- We could write this app in C#, but the groov does not appear to have Mono installed. Can Mono be installed on a groov? If so, what are the things we should take into consideration prior to installing Mono of a groov?
