Arduino software

Printable Arduino manual with ALL commands

Well I now have received my first arduino (duemilanova), having used PICAXEs for a few years,  but have a problem.

I do not have internet at home, where I do the programming, and cannot find a printable version of the arduino language manual (if there is one!).  I download a couple of basic 'beginners' manuals and printed them off, as well as the extended language reference.  My main problem comes in that some of the examples seem to be using commands not in the extended reference. 

 

Arduino Software Installation

Ok, so I bought my arduino diecimella on the internet, and im currently waiting for it to arrive. However, I want to prepare my comp by downloading the software. I downloaded the "program" to find it was a zip folder. I decided to check its readme to find a link to the website, the instructions  ask that I download a program called cygnus or something, which i did, then it said to download some other packages, only to get a couple programs on my desktop that dont open anything, so I read on, I also have to download the USB drivers, but GUESS WHAT!?
