Post ??FRC ROBOTC??
This is probably on the wrong forum, but does ROBOTC programming language work on the FRC robots as well as the FTC ones?

No! FTC robots use Mindstorms NXT (Arm based processor). FRC robots use the National Instruments cRIO (PowerPC based processor). They are entirely different. For FRC robots, you can use either LabView, Java or WindRiver C++. I heard you may use Python too, but not sure.

Even though FRC doesn't use RobotC, you can still use C++, which is almost the same language.

Well, although C++ is derived from C, it is quite different to write than C. C++ is a object oriented programming language. Everything in C++ is about objects.
