Concatenate 2 doubles in Serial output for Arduino

4 views (last 30 days)
I want to concatenate 2 doubles in Serial driver for Arduino, which I created using : http://www.mathworks.com/matlabcentral/fileexchange/39354-device-drivers
The reason is that I want to reduce the time taken by using multiple serial.print commands, and use only one serial.print for all the writing. I used this link as reference: http://letsmakerobots.com/content/arduino-fix-serialprint-used-diagnose-can-adversely-affect-timing
I have been unable to concatenate properly. This is what I want to do.
if true
outData = "";
outData += " Bot_no: "; outData += out_botnumber[0];
outData += " Waypt: "; outData += out_current_waypt[0];
outData += " Dist2Waypt: "; outData += out_dist_2_waypt[0];
Serial1.println(outData);
end
I get the following error:
if true

end
Can anyone please show me how to concatenate the two doubles as a single string in the device driver. I have attached my S-function driver block along with question.

Hi Abhishek,
Just some high level thoughts by just looking at the build logs !
Before this could you please check if the string library is added rightly to the build while you are trying to build ?
Looks like from the error is telling me that something is wrong with the way you are using the string library:
String& String::operator+=(long unsigned int) ./sfunc_separate_serial_out_wrapper.cpp:61: error: ambiguous overload for 'operator+=' in 'outData += * out_dist_2_waypt' C:/MATLAB/SupportPackages/R2014b/arduino-1.0.5/hardware/arduino/cores/arduino/WString.h:108: note: candidates are: String& String::operator+=(char)
Or look at if you have missed to extern the methods on the string class !
Thanks, Sreeram Mohan
