Hi , I am a newbie in both Linux and programming , I picked java as my first language which I hope not to regret later but time will show. So I have a gps receiver (unknown brand :D from Hong Kong sweet deal although) and I couldn't find a nice program to link it with Google Earth and use it as navigation for my car . And I thought why not employ it my java studies !!! I want to ask you , how can i catch the data and for the moment use it just to write it nicely in a .txt or .dat file so I can later access it and work on it ... I want to learn to use textual and numeric data (read it , write it , make computation and graphics with it) . I am open to any readings that you might suggest. I am currently finishing Teach yourself Java 6 in 21 days and I am doing some readings on programming paradigms on the net , hopefully I catch up quickly.
