  • "The basic asset of Holland's booklet is shared knowledge for designing a robotic in order that its building follows logically and of course. Credibility evolves from the author's large business adventure and luck. Candid, occasionally irreverent philosophy and strategically watermarked "Flashbacks" to private studies hold the reader entertained and informed...Summing Up: prompt. Graduate scholars via professionals." - R. E. younger, Pennsylvania kingdom college, selection, November 2004 Vol. forty two No. 03

Build the necessary protection into the object itself rather than exposing public variables. Visual Basic and real-time controls It is obviously beyond the scope of this book to attempt to address the basics of Visual Basic programming. There are many fine reference books on the subject, but they do not generally talk about real-time considerations, so I will try to provide some useful insights here. Although Visual Basic (VB) is not a true real-time language, it is a remarkably easy-to-use object-oriented language that can do a very impressive job of faking real-time operations.
