Hello, this is probably a really boneheaded question but I can't seem to get the WString library to work.
Following the instructions on:http://www.arduino.cc/en/Tutorial/TextString
I donwloaded the zip file String.zip and ran immediately into trouble. The instructions say:
"To use, unzip it and copy the resulting folder, called String, into the lib/targets/libraries directory of your arduino application folder."
Well, my arduino application folder has no "targets" directory in it. (Version 0017 for Linux). Still, no probs, I fearlessly went and created a "targets" and a "libraries" inside it. I then dumped the contents of the String.zip file in there (the folder called "String").
I then went and killed and restarted my IDE, went to File -> Examples to find the new examples, no joy.
OK, no sweat. I went into arduino/lib/targets/libraries/String/examples/StringAppendCharacter, opened the example and copy pasted it into the IDE. Trying to compile it informed me that:
66: error: WString.h: No such file or directory In function 'void setup()':
In function 'void loop()':
Sooo, I repeatedly tried restarting my IDE, I zapped my X server for the hell of it, nothing. The IDE stubbornly refuses to acknowledge the library. Any ideas what I 'm doing wrong?
