raspberry: wiringPI: dump gpio status

January 7, 2017

This post discusses how to use wiringPi to dump gpio status in raspberry.

what is gpio
Gpio are pins which CPU could use as input or output.

  • If a gpio pin is configured as input, then CPU could read this pin to know the status in other devices.
  • If a gpio pin is configured as output, then CPU could use this pin to control other devices.

what is wiringPi
wiringPi is written in c. It’s a tool to read/write gpio in raspbeery.

how to install wiringPi
After building wiringPi, gpio command can help manipulate gpio status.

$ git clone git://git.drogon.net/wiringPi
$ cd wiringPi/
$ sudo ./build
$ gpio -v
gpio version: 2.36

use wiringPi to dump gpio status
Use gpio readall to get all gpio status.

$ gpio readall
