Arduino Pinout ASCII art ready to go

To enable easy documentation of pin assignments, BusyDuckMan created a couple of ASCII art of Arduino Uno and Mega boards marking ports, PWM and coms. You can now then simply copy and paste as a comment into your code and document in an easy way how the arduino is connected to other devices:

They can be pasted into code comments, (use /* and */ in the arduino IDE to create a block comment). They can also be useful in forums, when you need a quick arduino diagram, but don’t want to fire up an image editor.

    haha this just made my motd!

    This is really good idea and it should be used in examples present in IDE, especially for shields. I often need to search in internet to find out which pins are in use and which I can use for my purpose.

    When I copy and paste the text from the web site, it is not formated in my sketch. I tried to copy it to text editor and it also is mangled..any thoughts? I have pasted below.

    It looks as though you have been bitten by the old “proportional-spaced font” issue. Try pasting it into Notepad, then copy/paste it from there into your sketch. Alternatively, paste it into a text editor and change the font to “Monospac821BT”. That should make everything line up.
