Why would a device meant to teach microcontroller science use such a complex, under documented language like Ardunio C++?
Would that add up to the 700+ pages that the first C++ standard had? (To say nothing of the current 1100+?)
You and the OP better put on boxing gloves and get together in a ring somewhere. He says it is "under documented" and you say it has 1100+ pages of documentation. You can't both be right. Maybe neither of you are.

@gooby: What's your point exactly? Do you wish the Arduino had been developed using Basic? Or Lisp? Or Smalltalk? Or Objective C? If so, that's interesting but hardly relevant to anyone.
Or have you just come here to complain?
More pointing out that things could have been better.
gooby,You have much to say, but do you have any constructive decisions in your mind?

Why should that matter here? If I were talking like this in the Suggestions forum, it would be an issue, but I'm not.

In the early days they were using HAL/S (and presumably other languages). One of my previous co-workers used to work at Intermetrics on the HAL/S compiler. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/HAL/S.

I started programming back in the early 1970's with Basic. I am not a great programmer
