Hi,
I started a first (short) Pinguino article on Wikipedia.
Feel free to complete it.
Thank you.
Régis.

And mister R. Haworth deleted it...
Is there a duplicate page of Pinuino, because I find nothing.

It's not a duplicate. The log is "G12: Unambiguous copyright infringement of http://www.pinguino.cc/ and related pages"; probably because you copy text from http://www.pinguino.cc and http://www.pinguino.cc is labeled "©Pinguino Team".

RE: Wikipedia
You're right Sebastien,
I think there are 2 ways to solve it :
1/ write a new article without mentioning to many words I used on pinguino.cc
2/ change the license to suit Wikipedia copyright policy (the whole Pinguino project is under the terms of the GNU Lesser General Public License as published by the Free Software Foundation so I guess I can give the site the same license, I'm not sure of the consequences ...)
Any other idea ?
Here is the text I submitted :
Quote:Pinguino is an Arduino-like electronics prototyping platform based on 8-bit or 32-bit ©Microchip PIC Microcontrollers with built-in USB module (no FTDI chip).
Pinguino is also an Integrated Development Environement (IDE), available as a FREE download. It gives anyone the ability to make easily an application without spending hours learning pragma, configuration bit, command line compiler, etc. It's available for LINUX, WINDOWS and MAC OS X.
Compatibilty with Arduino's Language and Libraries has been tested and is almost 100%. However, some libraries are still under development by the Pinguino Dev. Team (Ethernet & Android ADK) and some others will not be supported due to a lack of time or a lack of interest (SoftwareSerial, Matrix & Sprite). You're welcome to provide these "unsupported" libraries to the community ;o) Most of the libraries are enriched with specifics Pinguino instructions (for example, you can use Serial.printf with Serial library).
32-bit Pinguino programs are compiled with a C/C++ Compiler which is a GNU-Mips toolchain based on GCC 4.5.2, binutils 2.21 and Newlib 1.19.
8-bit Pinguino uses SDCC 2.9.0 compiler.
Pinguino is an Open Source and Open Hardware Project.
