[SOLVED] What is the source file extension ?
Hello Smile

Since now I've been programming in *.pde files but can I code in *.c files as well ?

Isn't *.pde files for processing or something?

Also; what is this "processing language" under the Arduino code's example: here?

Thanks !

RE: What is the source file extension ?
*.pde is the file extension of the Pinguino IDE ( which abstracts all the toolchain, compiling process, etc).
From the wiki, as quoted "The Pinguino IDE uses C++ syntax but Pinguino compilers only understand C. "
So, despite slight adjustments regarding hardware and functionality, you are working in C and/or C++.
If you want to create your own libraries http://wiki.pinguino.cc/index.php/How_ca...inguino%3F
If you want to lose the abstraction of the Pinguino , take it to a slightly lower level and use the original Microchip IDE and compilers/tools ! I love it, but not for the faint hearted, specially if you're using it as an introduction to this world of embedded systems ! Wink

Regarding Processing, started as an abstraction for graphics, but ended up so much more than just that (as example http://vimeo.com/7596987) ). The language abstraction was at the core of Wiring and Arduino alike !

Hello iyahdub; thanks for this perfect answer.
Everything is clear now. (Yeah; I've chosen Pinguino as an introduction to embedded programming Big Grin )

Good day to you Smile
