Projects developed by embedXcode are highly compatible with the standard IDEs, like Arduino and alike.However, unlike the standard IDEs, code with embedXcode is true C++.The main consequence of true C++ is the need for declaring prototypes of the functions in the main sketch.In the example provided below, the prototype for fancontrol() is required, as fancontrol() is called by loop() but defined after.Without prototyping fancontrol(), compilation would raise an error. The standard IDEs add the prototypes on the main sketch.Prototypes aren't required for libraries as they are already included in the header file.Prototypes are fully compatible with the standard IDEs.
The last release of the Arduino IDE 1.6.2 inaugurates a radical new internal structure and is not compatible with previous versions.The standard ASCII files for boards, platforms and programmes are gone! They are no longer under the folder /Applications /Arduino.app /Contents /Java /hardware /arduino /avr /boards.txt but they have moved to the hidden folder /Users /ReiVilo /Library /Arduino15 /packages /arduino /hardware /avr /1.6.2 /boards.txt.Moreover, the support for the Arduino Due doesn't come as standard. An additional download is required. Call the menu Tools > Boards > Boards Manager and then click on Download for the Arduino SAM Boards.Worse, none of the plug-ins developed by other providers of boards works with this next release 1.6.2.For all those reasons, embedXcode doesn't support release 1.6.2. Please install and use Arduino release 1.6.1, which is supported by embedXcode.
