Introduction: Raspberry Pi Writing C Code for Raspberry Pi

In this tutorial we will be looking at our first GPIO (General Purpose I/O) programming with the gcc C compiler.  Library files and pin out information for the raspberry pi can be found at the links below.

I can't really see what's written on your screen.. =(

But congratulations for your project!

Its a simple bit of code, which turns the GPIO pin on and off, by
setting it to low and high in a while loop and a timer between the two
what sets the pin. For this you can find many examples in python and is
fast enough to do this but if you want to work with range finders as i
am then C is the way to go. I do agree its far too small to read and to
be honest he should of enlarged it before creating his video
