Hi there,

In the Arduino EDI, we write code.

Can you please tell me what is that code language?

Is it a native language?  Is yes, what is the closest language? C, C++, Java,.. ?

PS: I know it is compiled to the microcontrollers machine code.

Thanks for your help and cheers,
Rene

Did you mean the Arduino IDE?

The open-source Arduino Software (IDE) makes it easy to write code and upload it to the board. It runs on Windows, Mac OS X, and Linux. The environment is written in Java and based on Processing and other open-source software.  This software can be used with any Arduino board.

The IDE is written with java and the code that you write in it is based on C/C++ but they added so restrictions that most of the C/C++ libs won't work due to Arduino RAM
