Competition Template Programming

Hi, can you put functions inside the task autonomous()? Because when I input my autonmous with functions into the task, it would give me errors.

Not put inside, but you canplace them ahead and call from your task. Such as:

void function1() {
int function2() {
    return 4;
task autonomous() {
    int count = function2();
    for (int i=0; i < count; i++)  {

are there any specific function names that should be avoided? any that may cause problems with the competition?

  • keywords, obviously (I vouldn’t try “void task() {}”, for example).
  • conflicts with RobotC and Cortex APIs (sprintf, setMotorTarget)
  • If you’d like to show your code to the judges, I’d avoid foul language :slight_smile:
