Arduino TVout library showing a maze
We are wasteful in modern computing, mainly in the area of memory and computing power. Both are so inexpensive that we (I mean programmers) become careless about how much we use of either. All of that changed for me, however, when I started playing with an Arduino.
This is a quick post comparing two different ways of solving a simple problem, yet with precious little resources. In my case, I found the TVout library for Arduino and decided to try to make a maze generation program. That's when everything I learned about structured programming went out the window.
