MCP23017 port expander in C/C++?

by Adrastos on Sat Dec 08, 2012 6:45 pm

Hey guys,

I've been using the cobbler board and a MCP23017 port expander with my pi successfully in Python, but I'm moving my code over to C/C++ for faster processing. There's a ton of documentation on using this expander with Python, but nothing that I can find in C/C++. Can anyone point me in the right direction or is this something I'm going to have to write myself?

The adafruit MCP23017 library is C++. Have a look - it ought to be enough to get you started
