Is this a wind up?

 

Notepad is the most basic Windows text editor ever. It does nothing but let you type/save files. That's all.

 

Did you perhaps mean Programmers Notepad: http://www.pnotepad.org/

 

About 10 years ago (actually more!) when Eric Weddington first started to make a Windows build of GCC and call it "WinAVR" he packaged a copy of Programmers Notepad into WinAVR because, at the time, it was a simple and contemporary IDE. That was then, this is now. While a lot of very old articles on the Internet still talk about WinAVR and Programmer's Notepad the fact is that things move on very quickly in computing. For one thing the last version of WinAVr dates from 2010 and hold avr-gcc 4.3.3. The recent Windows builds of avr-gcc for Windows (from Atmel) are now 4.8.1 and 4.9.2. That is 5 years more development, bug fixing and feature enhancement.

 

Also while Programmers Notepad still exists (see link above) the fact is that these days there are much more "powerful" IDEs available for avr-gcc with source browsing editors. Things like Code::Blocks, Eclipse and, when you use Windows, perhaps the most obvious choice of all is Studio 6.2 from Atmel which even include avr-gcc 4.8.1 when you download it.

Top Tips:

  1. How to properly post source code - see: https://www.avrfreaks.net/comment... - also how to properly include images/pictures
  2. "Garbage" characters on a serial terminal are (almost?) invariably due to wrong baud rate - see: https://learn.sparkfun.com/tutorials/serial-communication
  3. Wrong baud rate is usually due to not running at the speed you thought; check by blinking a LED to see if you get the speed you expected
