I built the device with an arduino first but it is not fast enough.  I am 
creating T1 timing and test patterns and running flat out that Arduino barely 
makes it but with too much jitter.  Pi is not that much more money and way 
faster.

I don't know what you are trying to do with the Raspberry Pi but maybe it isn't 
the right tool. I love it, it just isn't for everything. The Arduino or ESP32 
is better for analog anything and usually sensors. I would also tell you that 
you may want to look at using Python with the Pi. Tons of libraries and example 
code to source from. Lots of good IDE for Python. I like Atom but there are 
lots.

  I am guessing here, but it sounds like you need the make program and
  gcc?  i.e. "sudo apt-get make" and "sudo apt-get gcc" ???


  Make files can just be in the same directory as the source file, pretty
  much everything you work on can be in the same directory.
