Hi every body

this my first topic to me on Arduino forum , and I hope to be useful to you

I prepared this video to show you how to convert INO and PDE to hex file .

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cPXO8CbYlKw&feature=youtu.be

and this is the full tutorial for this video "I know it's not desired more than video " in arabic

thank you

no thing is impossible except that the state of your mind keeps it so...

The hex file is converted as part of the Verify (Compile) process.

Select File:Prefences, check Verbose output

When you compile the last 2 lines that are displayed are:

C:\Users\Owner\AppData\Local\Temp\build1191639898936270974.tmp\eightx32display_progmem_eeprom.cpp.hex
Binary sketch size: 8,362 bytes (of a 130,048 byte maximum)

And there's your hex file.

thank you CrossRoads , you are right .

any one don't know how to get hex file can return to this simple illustration .

If you only have an Arduino you can read back the hex file with the AVRDUDE.exe command. See the manual for the details / params.

Be careful as this tool can do a lot you might not intend to do ...

Its not that difficult to get the hex file from arduino, Check this tutorial out, they have shown in detail how to do that along with screenshots, pretty easy. http://www.theengineeringprojects.com/2015/10/hex-file-arduino.html
You can find a lot more tutorials on Arduino in my blog www.TheEngineeringProjects.com/blog

@theenggprojects , Isn't that what I posted 3 years ago?

Well, since it was bumped it's worth mentioning there is a new way to do this added in Arduino IDE 1.6.5:
  • Sketch > Export Compiled Binary
  • If you are doing this with an example then you will be prompted to save the sketch in another location.
  • Wait until the sketch has finished compiling.
  • Sketch > Show Sketch Folder
  • The .hex file will be in the sketch folder

Well, maybe I will jump from 1.0.6 up to something more current, that seems like a useful update to have.

Yes I think it's much easier to explain that method of finding the hex file to people. I work on 2 different bootloaders(ariadne and avr_boot) that require the user to find the hex file so this could simplify the documentation. Unfortunately I discovered a bug this week: the hex file name is the variant appended to the sketch name so if you have a board that references another vendor's variant(e.g. arduino:standard) then that causes an error on Windows because the : is not a valid character in filenames. I reported it and it has already been fixed but is only available in Arduino IDE 1.6.6.
