Does the compiler in the chipkit IDE use the Microchip floating point library by default?

How about DSP? Is the PIC32 DSP library accessible from the MPIDE? Similarly, what about the fixed point library?

It would be great to have the convenience of the Arduino environment with the Microchip libraries too. I'm hoping that my chipkit will arrive Monday.

Thanks, -Scott

At the moment, the chipKIT compiler uses the same floating-point math library packaged with the MPLAB C Compiler for PIC32 MCUs. The plan is to move to a fully open-source math library.

The DSP Library is not packaged with the chipKIT compiler. There's also no official fixed-point support at this time.
