[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
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 ). 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
