We’ve been learning about interrupts this week because of the brand new interrupt capabilities of RPi.GPIO. We covered a simple “wait for” interrupt in part 1, threaded callback interrupt and button debouncing in part 2 and today we’re getting sophisticated with multiple threaded callbacks. “WoooooooooOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOooooooooooo”, I hear you say.
Well actually, we’re not doing much that’s very different from last time, except, now there’s more of it. We’ll add another button and another threaded callback function the same as the first one (but on a different GPIO port). This is just to show that you can do multiple threaded callbacks in one program. After that, your imagination is the limit. (Well actually the number of GPIO ports is probably the limit.)
We’re just building on what we did before and this is exactly how programs are made. You do a bit at a time, test it, fix it, make sure it does what it ought to do, then go on to the next bit.
