Thank you for your reply . The example sketch i wanted to run contains following description
Demonstrates the control of digital pins of an Arduino board running the
StandardFirmata firmware. Clicking the squares toggles the corresponding
digital pin of the Arduino.
- Using the Arduino software, upload the StandardFirmata example (located
in Examples > Firmata > StandardFirmata) to your Arduino board.
- Run this sketch and look at the list of serial ports printed in the
message area below. Note the index of the port corresponding to your
Arduino board (the numbering starts at 0). (Unless your Arduino board
happens to be at index 0 in the list, the sketch probably won't work.
Stop it and proceed with the instructions.)
- Modify the "arduino = new Arduino(...)" line below, changing the number
in Arduino.list() to the number corresponding to the serial port of
your Arduino board. Alternatively, you can replace Arduino.list()
with the name of the serial port, in double quotes, e.g. "COM5" on Windows
or "/dev/tty.usbmodem621" on Mac.
- Run this sketch and click the squares to toggle the corresponding pin
HIGH (5 volts) and LOW (0 volts). (The leftmost square corresponds to pin
13, as if the Arduino board were held with the logo upright.)

I assume that by Arduino Software author meant Arduino IDE. is this correct?
