I followed the instructions on LEGO Turing Machine and succeeded to build it. Next I've tried and failed to program it using NXT Mindstorm GUI. The site mentions a Rascal framework, but it doesn't mention how to install it onto the NXT.

I'm not so keen using Rascal, any other well documented framework will do. Any suggestions ?

I'm using NXT 2.0

Rascal is a meta-language, a language to write languages in. Have you had a look at the repository Maybe one can load nxc files onto the nxt. Also you can try asking the repository owner via email. – User Dec 3 '13 at 10:54
Right, I'll check the BitFlipper. Sending the owner an email was my first action, thank you for commenting ! – serj Dec 3 '13 at 11:40
Actually, you can't build a turing machine, as it require an infinite tape. – Stephane Delcroix Dec 3 '13 at 15:13
