Small idea to make Wiring more "platform independent"
« on: March 23, 2012, 06:13:00 AM »
I just was looking for some info on Wirinig libraries, and I really liked the idea of segregating those in "core" (for microprocessor dependent) and "cross-platform" (that should work on any ÁP).

Obviously, some like EEPROM make only sense if there is some EEPROM on the chip, like AVR. However, I was surprised to see that the EEPROM related page was unfortunately not just specific to AVR boards, but to Wiring old generation ... : indeed, the http://wiring.org.co/reference/libraries/EEPROM/EEPROM.html refers to "pin 48" to blink the LED !

OTOH, the http://wiring.org.co/hardware/compare.html page strangely refers to BASIC alternatives far from Wiring, but forgets to include the Arduino MEGA that is more similar to Wiring V1 first column.

There is also an error on that comparison page, the Arduino supports more than 3 PWM outputs, I believe it is 6 (D3 D5 D6 D9 D10 D11).

Maybe not very important, but worth a correction IMHO.

Best regards.
