I am quite a newbie to AVR (I have done a bit with Parallax BS2's). I don't know C or Assembler, so I need a way to program in BASIC. Here is what I am looking for...
What is the least costly way to get started with AVR. What are the best of the "free" IDE's, Compilers, etc. What are the few things that I have to buy and how much will it cost? I have read some "Getting Stated" articles, but it looks like some of the items are expensive. I am sure that there is a inexpensive way to get started.
