I have installed Cygwin, MavProxy, and ArduPilot on my Windows laptop. I followed instructions according to https://ardupilot.org/dev/docs/sitl-simulator-software-in-the-loop.html. In Cygwin, from folder “autotest”, I enter
python sim_vehicle.py -v ArduSub -L RATBeach --map --console and it works fine. My objective is to edit ardupilot and test my edits in SITL before actually using them on the UAV. I have two questions:
- How do I tell the computer to recompile any or all C++ files so that my edits are actually implemented?
- How can I tell what C++ files, out of all of ardupilot, are used for ArduSub?
I have solid C++ experience but not really with command lines. Thank you!
