Unsure About Errors

Here are the errors:

Code:


13: Print( "Battery is "$voltageAA )
> Error on line 13: Missing binary operator:
"Battery is " [?] 67

15: Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number + 1 ":" $voltageAA)
> Error on line 15: Missing binary operator:
1 [?] ":"
":" [?] 69
Done (00:00:03.7516495)


Here's the script:

Code:


:start
$voltageAA = 0
print( "Load battery" )
Sleep(2000)

#Claw closed
servo(d0, 95)
servo(d1, 121)
Sleep(500)

#check and log voltage
$voltageAA = getadc(7)
Print( "Battery is "$voltageAA )
Sleep(300)
Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number + 1 ":" $voltageAA)

#claw open
servo(d0, 50)
servo(d1, 150)
Sleep(200)

#door open
servo(d2, 95)
sleep(500)

#door closed
servo(d2, 175)

Goto(start)


What do I have to do to fix them? I'm sure its just my script.

Because you're not appending the variable to the string...

This is wrong:

Code:


Print( "Battery is "$voltageAA )


This is correct:

Code:


Print( "Battery is " + $voltageAA )


Without it, you would have to begin understanding binary operations - which you don't, hence the question about the error:)
#2  
But what about the second one. It outputs

Code:

 
$number + 1 : $voltageAA

to the file. How do I fix that?

It should output

Code:


2: 127

or similar.
#3  
It's the same problem. You left out the + operators again:

Code:


Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number+1 ":" $voltageAA)
# Should be:
Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number+1 + ": " + $voltageAA)

There has to be a plus sign between each and every separate thing you are trying to combine into one sentence. In this case the + operator is being used in two different ways depending on context. The first one ($number+1), is used as a math addition operator. In the other cases it is being used as an append operator (as DJ mentioned above).
#4  
Alright, so spaces vs no spaces. Got it. Will test it tomorrow.
#5  
Umm, no. It's not about the spaces. It's about the adding of the plus signs:

Code:


Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number+1 + ": " + $voltageAA)
# | |
# Added Plus sign operators

I added a space with the colon so as to separate the colon from the $voltageAA value in the output, but that has nothing to do with why it didn't work. For instance:

Code:


Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number + 1 + ": " + $voltageAA)

# Will work the same as:

Filewriteline( "C:\Users\dylan_000\Desktop\AAlog.txt", $number+1+": "+$voltageAA)

The spaces between the parts make no difference.
