I currently have Arduino IDE software downloaded from http://arduino.cc/en/Main/Software
and this is functioning very well. OS is Windows XP Home S/P3.
I would like to learn and experiment with the open source
programming language as detailed in http://www.processing.org/learning/
. these tutorials need the
software called processing-1.5.1-windows to be loaded on to the PC,
and this looks pretty much the same as the
Arduino IDE software noted above. The physical difference seems to
be the inclusion of a display window where the results of any
programming done in the text editor is displayed.
Can both these programs co-exist on the same PC without causing any
problems with either one. I suspect that there may be areas like the windows folder which contain common files and loading two similar pieces of software may cause conflict here.
If this is indeed the case is there any other way around this problem.
