Example text

Anything in between those two symbols is code that belongs to the function. ) In this program, you have two functions; the first function is called setup and its purpose is to setup anything necessary for your program to work before the main program loop runs: void setup() { pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT); } Your setup function only has one statement and that is pinMode, which telling the Arduino that you want to set the mode of one of your pins to be Output mode, rather than Input. Within the parenthesis, you put the pin number and the mode (OUTPUT or INPUT).

Which is the International Morse Code distress signal. Morse Code is a type of character encoding that transmits letters and numbers using patterns of on and off. It is therefore nicely suited to your digital system as you can turn an LED on and off in the necessary pattern to spell out a word or a series of characters. S. pattern is three dits (short flash), followed by three dahs (long flash) , followed by three dits again. To flash th e LED on an d off in this pattern, signaling SOS, use th e code in Listing 2-2.

Also, if your code is meant to be seen by other people, comments will help that person understand what is going on in your code. The whole ethos of the Arduino, and indeed the whole Open Source community, is to share code and schematics. I hope that when you start making your own cool stuff with the Arduino you will be willing to share it with the world, too . There is another format for making comments; it is a block statement bookended by / * and * / , like so: 1* All of the text within the slash and the asterisks is a comment and will be ignored by the compiler *1 23 CHAPTER 2 • LIGHT 'EM UP The IDE will automatically turn the color of any commented text to grey.
