Language Refernce

Is there somewhere published a PDF of the Language Reference? I want to study it: it is so slow to keep looking up references which at a guess can fill one's needs, during programming . . . . OR can it be somehow downloaded from the website?

MANY Thanks.

This is quite old but may be of help

Arduino Language Reference.pdf (539 KB)

IMHO you will learn more quickly about C/C++ but just diving into it through the abundant example sketches.

You can read a reference if you want but I reckon you won't learn much until you start 'doing'.

Load the sketches on your Arduino and observe what happens in Serial monitor.

Then make some small changes to the code and observe what effect they have on the output.

If you get stuck ask questions in here.

C-PLUS-PLUS (link) is an excellent site with clearly written code for every element of the language.
It's not a tutorial , so you may regret your question - but I use it every now & then for a quick check on function syntax.... it's never let me down.

I doubt you can print the whole site to a PDF - it would be many thousands of pages... perhaps email and ask them.. !?!

Actually cplusplus.com does have an excellent tutorial:
C++ Language - C++ Tutorials
You have to skim over some parts that don't apply to Arduino but I found it extremely helpful. That site also has a good reference.

That site also has a section of user contributed articles which I found to be of inconsistent quality. I wouldn't spend much time in that section until you have enough general knowledge to be able to evaluate the quality of the information provided.

Not quite true. Whilst it is an excellent source of information regarding C++ it does not provide any reference to the Arduino specific functions.
