Good tutorials on that Class and Member stuff in some Arduino libraries
The LiquidCystal library for LCDs is commonly listed on many websites so I tried looking at it and it has all this Class and Member stuff that I was not familiar with.
I was looking for some stepper motor information and I ran across this website which had a tutorial that explained it to me using the classic blinking LED code.
There is also a follow-up tutorial on libraries that includes a link to the Arduino website that I've never seen before.
I hope others find this useful and I can see now that Classes aren't as complicated as they initially seemed.
The class and member stuff in C++, as used by the Arduino, has a lot in common with the object and method stuff in Spin on the Propeller. Have you never used a Propeller and Spin?
I noticed that.
Spin uses Object, Method, Private and Public but not Class, Member, or Property.
The tutorial made it understandable and showed how to apply it.
