I am relatively new to the AVR range of micro controlers by many years ago used to work on 6800 & 8051 bassed systems (assembler)
I do not fine the Arduino environment particularly comfortable, mainly because it hides too much - even the generated hex file needs a search of /tmp to locate.
I much prefer the traditional aproach of a simple text editor & mkefile but 3rd party librarys most often seemed to be aimed at the Arduino environment.
so the simple question is can these be used outside the Arduino environment (if I hgave to Migrate to C++ so be it) without an excessive amount of effort & if so can someone point me in the right direction?
