there is almost no documentation (relatively) for the Arduino environment and language.
Perhaps a small list of applicable study material would be helpful.
It has been great fun learning via the Arduino and it's IDE.
However, there are times my simplistic inquiries irritate or amuse.
I fully understand how frustrating a newbie can be.
However, unlike main stream languages that offer hundreds of text books for you to learn from there is almost no documentation (relatively) for the Arduino environment
What I suggest is a new comers corner.
This would be a place to hide the irritating questions that more advanced members find so offensive of comical.
However, I feel that many new hobbyist with a thinner skin than mine might be scared off.
The alternative is poorly documented (millis timing). This is, no doubt, due to the fact that it is very easily understood by those with backgrounds in programming.
I can only speak for myself regarding the fantastic Google search engine. Days of searching normally turns up two or three relevant links.
But many times I get 'this is so easy I don't understand why you can't get it'. Or better, I'll get less than one line, a link to the example that hasn't helped.
In that I am the only one with these problems it would be inappropriate to do anything.
Frustrated, I tossed out my first idea without considering whether it was helpful or not.
Here again, my apologies.
As stated at other places in the forum I will not find one bit of help with millis timing in any of these text books
