Add string type for interfaces

Reported by: tim Owned by: tim
Priority: major Milestone: 0.3
Component: Fawkes Version:

Git Branch:


Currently to store a string in the BlackBoard via an interface you create a char type array field with a certain length. The code in the interface generator is unpleasant to read because often specific checks are done for stuff related to char, especially char arrays.

A new type string should be added, which allows to more clearly separate 8-bit data fields (char) and strings. This needs modification to the interface generator and to all interfaces, but ideally not to the interface users.

Actually I want a byte type to get rid of the (ambiguous) char type, to squash it once and for all I'm going to add the string type as well.
