I'm a complete newbe in this line of business.
I just set up part of the toolchain following the instructions at http://interactive-matter.eu/how...
Under "Creating your first AVR project" I find these lines:
"After this is done you can select the Target Hardware options and select your target hardware here. In this dialogue you can either pick it from the drop down list or read it from the target hardware itself. I suggest connecting your programmer with the target hardware and read out the value. So you do not have to search the correct value and you test your whole setup, the programmer and the target hardware. If you can read out the target hardware, you will be able to program it."
Just wondering what this means.
Do I have to connect my Arduino board at this time?
Even before I programmed one line of code?
Can/will anyone enlighten me please, or point to an appropriate tutorial (there are just so many, you know).
