How to use your Raspberry Pi like an Arduino

by Bart Pelgrims on January 11, 2013

raspberry pi like arduinoTedbot experimented with the Raspberry Pi’s GPIO (General Purpose Input/Output) pins. In his article he describes three methods to do this: Python, Bash and C. Using those three programming languages he turns on and off a LED.

He used an old floppy disk drive IDE ribbon cable to connect the RPi’s GPIO header. Soldered some breadboard-friendly header pins onto the other end.

It would be way better to use an add-on GPIO expansion board, but this does demonstrate the basic use of the RasPi’s GPIO usage.
