Hi everyone. I just got my first Arduino and I’m diving into this headfirst! I have a couple questions which I am confused about.
First off, I am confused as to whether the Arduino programming language is based on C/C++ or Java. I read that it is based on C, but also that it is based on Processing, which is based on Java.
Secondly, since memory capacity is an issue, why is there no boolean or bit variable type? At least I did not see one here: http://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/VariableDeclaration
Thanks a lot and nice to meet you all!
