Yes.

It is complete with a customized version of analogRead() as well as a way to construct an 8-bit type from it.

The ideal is solid, except it is incorrectly implemented.


In what way? Could you post your corrections please?

Have you posted the corrections to the coding bug list? If not, why not?
