  • Sample Code filename conventions

    I was gonna post this in the sample-code discussion but it seems to be read-only.

    There's a minor issue with the Euroshield sample code that Christine posted, which is a side effect of the 1010 company name conflicting with a needlessly restrictive file-naming convention used by the Arduino IDE. Specifically, the Arduino IDE doesn't like .ino files that begin with numbers. So, for example, if I attempt to open 1010Saw.ino (or any other example) in the IDE by double-clicking on it, I get an error message, "Could not create the sketch". The workaround is to rename all the project folders (and the ino files they contain) to start with a letter, such as X1010. Underscores seem to work okay, so maybe _1010 is more readable.

    FYI, I experienced this on Arduino IDE 1.8.2 running on a Mac (but I'm pretty sure it's the Arduino IDE and not the Mac which is being picky).

    Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It does work on the Windows version.
