hello luiz, it looks promissing!
i will try it by the weekend
thank you very much
it seems like a begining for a libary, or at least an examples collection,
a sonar sensor utility, a relay which you helped me before, the temperature
sensor patrick mentioned and you seem to have it working... I guess they
are the basic and popular stuff
