I am running IDE Arduino 1.8.5 on an Arduino Uno R3 When I try to compile or download certain sketches culled from on-line projects I get the following error:
"error compiling for board Arduino/Genuine UNO"
Also in red characters in the window at the bottom of the IDE: "exit status 1 error compiling for board Arduino/Genuine UNO"
The sketch will not compile past this error so I can't search for obvious coding errors. Any ideas why I get this error and what is the explanation/reason??
Using the same board andtsettings: Tools/Board/Arduino/Genuine UNO and the same Port: Com 1 I can compile some sketches buy not others which give me this same error
I am still very much a beginner so not yet familiar with the IDE compiler errors Help gratefully received
