I have just started working with a chipKit MAX32, trying to force myself to learn the Arduino type environment rather than dig into MPLAB. In the past I have worked a lot with AVR Studio but never really used the Arduino environment.

I expected to find header and library source files somewhere after installing Mpide, but do not find anything except

My question is if the standard libraries are all "embedded" in the app, or if they are hiding from me somewhere on my Mac Mini.

I have verified that I can use the LiquidCrystal library, so it clearly is known to the environment.

On the mac an application (.app file) is actually a directory. Within that directory is a whole lot of files, including the compiler and all its support files, the java .jar files that comprise the application, and yes, the libraries.

From a terminal window you can "cd" into the application, and take a look at all the files.

OK, found them. I had used Finder to browse in but did not go into the Java folder. Never would have expected to find the .cpp and .h files there.

Many thanks, nice to have a tiny bit of feel for the environment.
