First off, I was wondering if there was a way to use WinSCP to run a sketch file, a .ino, from winSCP. (I saw it had to be in .elf form, but im not really sure what that means)
Second, I am trying to get data from one arduino, plugged into my pc, into an edison over wifi. So my best bet was using puTTy to turn the serial data into .txt, and automate the transfer over wifi. I wanted realtime transfer (<500 ms), and im not sure if the arduino can read a changing file, without reopening it every loop.
Is there a better way to directly access live serial data? I am very new to this stuff.
