First, "Arduino" is not a programming language. It's more of a "framework" based on standard C/C++
Because Arduino's language is unique, it is language.
It may mostly be C
If 1-bit auto-bit packed variables as well as 24-bit integers were integrated into Arduino's...vocabulary--would you avoid using them, or would you use them?
this kind of technique can efficiently be done at compile time
If there are Int24s available, then why not support them?
Pert, where exactly did I refuse anything in this thread?
As for 1 bit variables, please provide a demonstration of how this should be implemented in Arduino's core library. Remember that we are using a standard C++ compiler. Arduino is not in the business of writing compilers (nor would you want them to be).
if a single-bit bit-packed variable was available in Arduino, you wouldn't use them?
