although the Arduino IDE itself is painful to use in my opinion

kwrite (or Notepad2 if you're using Windoze) has good syntax highlighting for C and C++.

I only use the IDE as a sort-of "GUI make" and serial terminal.  Just load the source and go.

Hi Chaps

I have an Ubuntu OS (Linux). I have been Windows free for 2 years......good grief I sound like a client at a 'Windows Users Anonymous' meeting  ;D

I have been reading sketch's, tutorials and watching youtube video's of everything Arduino. My mind is set to explode out of both ears I think. I get the drift but I fancy there is some subtlety in good coding which I hope will make more sense when I have my module and start trying the various tutorials.

It should be a laugh.....depending on your point of view.

Good coding is an art form, your code should be as elegant as possible.

I can do elegant.......It's the coding that's going to be iffy  :-/

My Module arrived today! It is in fact a clone, but no matter, it works!

The board is marked -

DFROBOT
DFRduino
Duemilanove

The make up of the board includes the 'auto' voltage/power input. Overall I am very pleased and my only niggle is that the crystal isn't sat flat to the PCB which is a non issue really.

As soon as I plugged the USB cable in the 'Blinky' sketch started running. So I placed an LED in Pin 13/GND and that completes my first lesson  ;D



I'll just scratch my head and wonder what to do next I think.....Over a lovely cup of Yorkshire tea!
