-====== ​What is a Library? ====== +====== ​Moved! ======

-Libraries are great places, and not yet illegal in the United StatesIf you ever need to learn how to do something, like say fix a motorcycle, you can go to your local library and take out a book. Sure you could buy the book but the library is nice because as a resource you can get the book whenever you need it, keeping your house uncluttered. +

-Software Libraries are very similar. We already studied what a procedure is, in [[http://​​learn/​arduino/​lesson3.html|lesson 3]]: a procedure is a list of things to do. A library is a big collection of procedures, where all the procedures are related! If you, say, want to control a motor, you may want to find a Motor Control Library: a collection of procedures that have already been written for you that you can use without having to do the dirty work of learning the nuances of motors. +

-For example, this is the Serial Library, which allows the Arduino to send data back to the computer: +

-====== Using libraries ​====== +
- +
-One of the best features of the Arduino project is the ability to add on pre-crafted libraries that add hardware support. There'​s tons of them, and you can pick and choose which to install. They'​re only loaded in when the sketch you're working on needs them, so for the most part you can download and stash them for future use. +
