Software application written with Arduino, an IDE used for prototyping electronics; contains source code written in the Arduino programming language; enables developers to control the electronics on an Arduino circuit board.

More Information

To avoid file association conflicts with the Processing software, Arduino changed the Sketch file extension to .INO with the version 1.0 release. Therefore, while Arduino can still open ".pde" files, the ".ino" file extension should be used instead.

Text

This file is saved in a plain text format. You can open and view the contents of this file using a text editor.

Definition

Source code file written in the Processing programming language; may contain functions, variables, and other programming constructs; used for storing Processing programs, called "sketches," and running them within the Processing IDE; can be used for programming images, animations, and interactions.

More Information

Each PDE file is stored in its own folder when saved from the Processing IDE. It is saved with any other program assets, such as images. The project folder and PDE filename prefix have the same name. When the PDE file is run, it is opened in a Java display window, which renders and runs the resulting program.

Processing is commonly used in educational settings for teaching basic programming skills in a visual environment.
