In December 2011, Arduino 1.0 was once published. This replaced a couple of issues that experience triggered the sketches for tasks 10, 27, and 28 during this publication to wreck. to mend this, it is very important get the newest types of the Keypad and IRRemote libraries. * The Keypad library has been up-to-date for Arduino 1.0 through its unique creators and will be downloaded from right here: http://www.arduino.cc/playground/Code/Keypad * Ken Shiriff's IRRemote library has been up to date and will be downloaded from right here: http://www.arduinoevilgenius.com/new-downloads

Inside the while loop, we first flash the current dot or dash using a function that we are going to discuss in a moment and then add 1 to “i” and go back round the loop flashing each dot or dash in turn until we reach the end of the string. The final function that we have defined is flashDotOrDash’; this just turns the LED on and then uses an if statement to either delay for the duration of a single dot if the character is a dot, or for three times that duration if the character is a dash, before it turns the LED off again.
Variables and Data Types We have already met the variable ledPin and declared it to be of type int. Most of the variables that you use in your sketches are also likely to be ints. An int holds an integer number between –32,768 and +32,767. This uses just two bytes of data for each number stored from the 1024 available bytes of storage on an Arduino. If that range is not enough, you can use a long, which uses four bytes for each number and will give you a range of numbers from –2,147,483,648 to +2,147,483,647.
We can now add our components for this project, which we can take from the breadboard. First, line up all the components in their intended places according to the layout of Figure 3-12 to make sure everything fits in the available space. This kind of board is double-sided—that is, you can solder to the top or bottom of the board. As you can see from the layout in Figure 3-12, some of the connections are in strips like a breadboard. We are going to mount all the components on the top side, with the leads pushed through and soldered on the underside where they emerge from the board.
