Example text

If the light is not flashing, follow the instructions again to see where the installation went wrong. You cannot proceed if this does not work. cc/en/Guide/Troubleshooting. 24 Chapter 2 Structure of “Hello World” Figure 2-8. The LED on pin 13 You might want to come back to this section and run through these steps if you have problems working with Arduino in the future; the Blink example is a good test to ensure that Arduino is working. If the LED does not flash, it’s a good time to make sure the cord is plugged in, or determine whether your computer or the Arduino is having problems.

The setup() function will be called automatically immediately after the Arduino is powered or has been programmed. Calling a function consists of a return value of a function (void), the name of the function (setup), and a list of parameters in parentheses. This function does not take parameters, so there is nothing inside the parentheses. This function does not return values, so its type is void (empty). When calling a function, commands are listed within a block of code, which is enclosed in curly braces ({}).

Select Tools→Board→Arduino Uno, as shown in Figure 2-6. If you are using a different model of Arduino, select it instead. Figure 2-6. Arduino board selection Select File→Sketchbook→Examples→1. Basics→Blink. This example code flashes the LED on the Arduino pin 13 (the Uno includes an onboard LED connected to pin 13). Determine which serial port Arduino is using: Windows Open the Start menu, right-click the computer icon, and select Properties. System Properties will open. On Windows XP, click Hardware.
