There is one primary goal for this book: to teach you how to use the C programming language. The environment for reaching that goal is the Atmel family of microcontrollers. While C can be used to program other microcontrollers, our emphasis is on the Atmel controllers. Given that there are probably a bazillion C programming books available to you, why should you choose this one? Good question, and there’s no single answer. However, I can give you some facts that might help with making your decision.
First, this book is specifically written for the Arduino family of microcontroller boards using the Atmel family of microcontroller chips. As such, the book is couched within the framework of an integrated development environment (IDE) that is available as a free Internet download. An IDE is a single program that combines all of the functions required to progress from the C language source code you are writing to an executable program. In essence, an IDE is a text editor, compiler, assembler, and linker all rolled into one program. Having the free Arduino IDE means you will not have to buy additional programming tools to learn C.
Second, the implementation of C provided with the IDE is not quite a full American National Standards Institute (ANSI) implementation of the C programming language. This implementation of the C language, which I will henceforth call Arduino C, is a robust, and virtually complete, subset of ANSI C. (The most obvious missing feature is the double data type, although float is supported.) In fact, the underling compiler you will be using throughout this book is the open source C++ compiler (GCC), which is full-featured. You will learn more about the language features available to you as we proceed through the book.
