For people who’ve had trouble getting TextFinder to work with Arduino 1.0-rc1, Michael Margolis has released a new version of the library that should compile for both the older Arduino 0022 and the newer Arduino 1.0-rc1. You can find it on the Arduino playground.

Chapter 4

Chapter 6

Chapter 9

Chapter 10

The code in my gitHub repository for these examples is up to date for Arduino 1.0-rc1.

 

If you’re trying to use any of the Ethernet examples or the Wifi example straight from the 2nd edition of Making Things Talk, you’re probably getting some errors related to the definition of Client and Server. Here’s how to fix them.
