I am modifying a library that I downloaded. However, I am at work, writing arduino code when I should be counting beans. Shhh... Therefore, I don't have access to my arduino IDE.
My question is, what will happen if there is an error in a library? Like a syntax error that prevents the code from compiling? Will I see it when I try to import it? Or when I try to compile the sketch that includes the library? How will I know if any given error is in my library or in my sketch? I'm not talking about logic errors. I will be able to spot them. I am talking about compiling errors. Does it make a difference if I edit the library in place in the library folder itself? Do I need to restart the arduino ide each time I make a change to the library code?
I suppose I will figure this all out for myself when I get home, but just in case there is anything weird about this, I thought I'd ask here first.
