'Hardware abstraction'.
 
Does this mean,for example,
the creation of an instruction to do some task with a specific piece of hardware to ,say, enable text to be displayed on a 'Yamamoto' display. (I've made the Yamamoto bit up).

In a similar manner to (e.g) 'pinMode(x,y) being compiled into something that actually sets, ATmega pin 'x' as input/output?
 - Where pinMode is an instruction created within the Arduino development envoironment?


If so, is there a list of the commands/instructions within Arduino.h ?

Where do the   .cpp files fit in the scheme? I know thy are C++ files but what were they (and the headers) created with? What specifically is a header?

Sorry for so many questions. If there is a info document more appropriate for this, that you are aware of, could you provide a link (pun intended!) to it.
Many thanks.

Sorry, i'm totally ignorant here.
My previous experience is faily basic, in Basic (compiled & interpreted) plus some assy code in
Motorola 6800 / 68000.
Didn't really get into development envoironment using linkers etc.

More recently, just in PLC (Eg. Siemens S7 ladder and SCL programming).

What is /was Wiring and Processing?

Thanks.
This has also solved a problem for me.

But could someone please explain, what these headers contain, in particular Arduino.h

Who and /or what created it.
Or is there a good guide available to read - relevent to Arduino 1.0 -
Why are the library files different, as opposed to just having extra 'files' in a library say between
0023 and v1.0

TIA.
