What does IDE stand for? Does that mean Integrated Development Environment?

Yes, but IMO this post should be in the software section of the Forum, because IDEs don't always pertain to Microcontrollers. :D

Yep. In the Arduino context, the "IDE" is the GUI application that you interact with, and excludes the pieces that work underneath, like the gcc compiler(s) used for compile, or the avrdude utility used for upload/burn.

Oh oopps ok got it. :blush: Thanks
