Hello Arduino People, I am new to Arduino but am impressed so far with the board and IDE. Kudos to the developers. Especially the consideration to Macintosh users such as myself. My first question is this - I note in many example programs the following kind of thing:-
int ledPin = 13; // LED connected to digital pin 13
... now ledPin is as far as I can see able to be a BYTE (0-255) rather than an INT (0-65535). Does the compiler deal with this kind of thing transparently to the programmer? Or would it be better practice to define as byte where possible?
... or is there a FAQ where such dumb questions are answered? Regards, Tony Barry
