Building and Running the Sample Code

The Dynamixel SDK example code for C uses a .so (Linux) library built in C.

By doing above, each released Dynamixel SDK have latest library files in [DynamixelSDK folder]/c/build/[linuxXX]/libdxl_xYY_c.so which were built by its own source code.

$ cd [DynamixelSDK folder]/c/example/protocol1.0/read_write/linux32 OR
$ cd [DynamixelSDK folder]/c/example/protocol1.0/read_write/linux64

$ make

$ sudo chmod a+rw /dev/ttyUSB0

$ ./read_write
