This seems not to work. With the simple first demo.c from the WinAVR I searched for "PB3", it was only found in demo.c and not in sfr_defs.h? Am I missing something? :?:

Which tool do you use?
If you are using programmers notepad, which version?

I use AVR Studio 4.12.

The Find in files in Studio 4.12 is more than lame. It searches the folder You specify in the dialog, and its subdirectories.
If You keep "Search only in files in project" then the external dependencies are not included in the search.

There are several other shortcomings:
I am missing a check box saying "Search in project include files" or some such, that searhes these files wherever they are.

I would also like checkboxes for "Case sensitive" search and "Whole words". As it is now, its always case sensitive, and not whole words.

The ability to use regular expressions would be nice.

Oh, a check box for "Search sub-directories" would be nice.

I also notice that the Find in files funtion is not accessible unless You have a edit window open (seems like the Atmel folks took the easy way out hiding the complete Edit menu rather than disabling almost all choices in it.)

All of this is trivial ranting though. I can always pick up anothereditor when I need to do an advanced Finds in files (or run grep on a command line).

The important thing about Studio 4.12 is that the integration of AVR-GCC is just wonderful!

No guarantees, but if we don't report problems they won't get much of  a chance to be fixed! Details/discussions at link given just above.
