Can't compile RTC breakout example [SOLVED]

by DanPolka on Tue Feb 18, 2014 5:40 am

I can't get the example sketch from the RTClib for Adafruit DS1307 Real Time Clock breakout board kit to compile.

I'm on a Windows Vista machine, Arduino UNO Rev3, IDE 1.0, and I haven't had any such problem compiling OTHER sketches, so I presume my general library placement is correct.

The example in question is from a RTClib I got from here:
https://github.com/adafruit/RTClib
following instructions from here:
http://learn.adafruit.com/ds1307-real-t ... no-library
which I got to from here:
http://www.adafruit.com/products/264

I suspect either I got a wrong library, or it's somehow in the wrong place, or it's something else related to the library?

My Arduino library & the RTC lib is located thus:
C:\Users\Dan (Admin)\Documents\Arduino\libraries\RTClib\examples

And I'm trying to compile the ds1307 example sketch.

Here's the code from the example:

Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
// Date and time functions using a DS1307 RTC connected via I2C and Wire lib

#include <Wire.h>
#include "RTClib.h"

RTC_DS1307 rtc;

void setup () {
  Serial.begin(57600);
#ifdef AVR
  Wire.begin();
#else
  Wire1.begin(); // Shield I2C pins connect to alt I2C bus on Arduino Due
#endif
  rtc.begin();

  if (! rtc.isrunning()) {
    Serial.println("RTC is NOT running!");
    // following line sets the RTC to the date & time this sketch was compiled
    rtc.adjust(DateTime(__DATE__, __TIME__));
  }
}

void loop () {
    DateTime now = rtc.now();
   
    Serial.print(now.year(), DEC);
    Serial.print('/');
    Serial.print(now.month(), DEC);
    Serial.print('/');
    Serial.print(now.day(), DEC);
    Serial.print(' ');
    Serial.print(now.hour(), DEC);
    Serial.print(':');
    Serial.print(now.minute(), DEC);
    Serial.print(':');
    Serial.print(now.second(), DEC);
    Serial.println();
   
    Serial.print(" since midnight 1/1/1970 = ");
    Serial.print(now.unixtime());
    Serial.print("s = ");
    Serial.print(now.unixtime() / 86400L);
    Serial.println("d");
   
    // calculate a date which is 7 days and 30 seconds into the future
    DateTime future (now.unixtime() + 7 * 86400L + 30);
   
    Serial.print(" now + 7d + 30s: ");
    Serial.print(future.year(), DEC);
    Serial.print('/');
    Serial.print(future.month(), DEC);
    Serial.print('/');
    Serial.print(future.day(), DEC);
    Serial.print(' ');
    Serial.print(future.hour(), DEC);
    Serial.print(':');
    Serial.print(future.minute(), DEC);
    Serial.print(':');
    Serial.print(future.second(), DEC);
    Serial.println();
   
    Serial.println();
    delay(3000);
}

Here's the error message:

This is a known issue in V1.0 of the IDE. http://www.adafruit.com/forums/viewtopi ... 39#p209509
Try a more recent version of the IDE. Avoid the 1.5.x beta version for now, 1.0.4 and 1.0.5 are both quite stable.

Thanks!! Is there any specific way to apply the download of the newer IDE so as to retain my current sketches with the new IDE?

It looks like you have 1.0 installed here:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
C:\Program Files\Arduino\arduino-1.0

And your sketches and library installs are in:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
C:\Users\Dan (Admin)\Documents\Arduino

and
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
C:\Users\Dan (Admin)\Documents\Arduino\libraries\


Just install 1.0.5 here:
Code: Select all | TOGGLE FULL SIZE
C:\Program Files\Arduino\arduino-1.0.5

And it will be able to find all your existing libraries and sketches.

Is there some way to indicate on the posting that this problem has been solved??

You should be able to just edit the first post (see edit button on upper right of message) and change the title.
