ROBOTC for Arduino - Overview  

ROBOTC for Arduino is an Integrated Development Environment . It has been developed to provide as much support as possible for the platforms it is compatible with. The ROBOTC interface will modify itself to accommodate the functionality found in your controller. ROBOTC extends the ‘C’ programming language with a number of built-in variables and functions to provide control over a robot’s hardware devices, i.e. the motors and sensors.

There are three main sections to the ROBOTC IDE:
1. The Editor
2. The Code Templates / Function Library
3. The Main Menu / Toolbar

Editor:
This is the part of the interface where the user can write code.
 

 

Code Templates / Function Library:
This portion of the interface allows user to see all the functions available in ROBOTC at their user level. Portions of code from the "Function Library" can be dragged into the Editor.

 

Main Menu / Toolbar:
This area allows you to perform basic tasks (saving, copy & pasting, undo, etc.), switch between multiple open programs using the tabbed interface, and access all of ROBOTC's additional functionality through the various menus.
