RobotC vs. Pros?

I’ve heard that some people prefer using pros to using RobotC? I don’t have any experience with pros, so can someone tell me the advantages/disadvantages of using pros over RobotC? Also what the major differences are between the two? Thanks!

In the future, please thoroughly search the forum before asking your question. It helps prevent duplicate posts and clutter. Thanks!

Here is what you’re looking for. If you need other clarifications not covered here, let us know.

Here are some recent discussions:

I found these by typing “RobotC vs PROS” (note the quotes) in the search box of the forum.

Hi, we were recently discussing answering questions that have been answered before.

I think your answer was great but perhaps next time you should mention that if the person is having difficulty with the forum’s search feature to try google. "Vex Forum: "

I often find myself struggling with finding things on the forum, so new people may have a much harder time with it

Even better “site: <search_terms>” better yet, searching it on DuckDuckGo.

That’s awesome. Thanks

That should also work on google, and I imagine similar tools (if not the same) are available on Bing and other search engines.

I will go ahead and give you a couple of reasons many teams are going to PROS. PROS is actually C. RobotC is sort of C. In PROS, you program exactly the way you would using C in any other application.

One other reason I have not seen mentioned in the other threads, but may be there is that with PROS you can use more digital sensors. PROS allows you to use analogue ports for digital sensors.

One advantage of RobotC is the real time debugger. There are some similar things you can do with PROS but not exactly the same.

You can do this in any language for switches. The analog ports won’t support the ultrasonic sensor and I’m pretty sure they won’t support encoders either.

It does work on Google, but DuckDuckGo doesn’t spy on you :wink:

It seems like you’re looking for the pros to using pros.

Or the Cons to using Pros. Either way. Both are good.

Ummmm… I didn’t say that quote in that quote you quoted.

You are, of course, absolutely right. How on earth did I do that, I was quoting @blatwell You would think after all these years and 5000+ posts I could use the forum correctly. I will fix it.
