So far, we have been using the
mraa library to work with PWM and change the brightness level for the different LEDs and colors within an RGB LED. However, in the first chapter, we also installed the
wiring-x86 library. We can change just a few lines of our object-oriented code to replace the
mraa library with the
wiring-x86 one to change the brightness levels for the red, green and blue components.
There is an important difference between the
mraa library and the
wiring-x86 library when working with PWM. The former works with floating point values from 0.0f to 1.0f to set the output duty cycle percentage, but the latter works with values from 0 to 255 inclusive to set this value. Thus, when working with ...
