Post Help with quadrature encoder...
I am a total nube with RobotC and and VEX controller, and need help with the quad encoder. I can't get any of the sample programs to work. Does the encoder plug into input ports or int ports? If it plugs into input ports, are there any that I cannot use? Please help!

That was a help. I now realize that I have the older single wire version of the shaft encoder. Is there documentation for it as well?

The whole Teaching ROBOTC for VEX was made using the non-quad encoders. Just go to:

http://www.robotc.net/vex_full/

and go to Sensing, and Autonomy. That section uses the encoders. You can look through to see how they're used.
