I am using avr-studio 4, with AVR-GCC, and am interested in programming in C-language. It takes me a very long time to learn this (from programming professionally for years in Microsoft Visual studio, mainly in visual basic).
So question #1 is, AVR-GCC and GNU-GCC are not the same, and that GNU-GCC is a completely different set of libraries just for AVR and GNU-GCC is a universal set of libraries for C, am I correct?
And question #2 is - WHAT program do I use to unzip and manage "TAR" files, because winzip doesnt work and eveything on downloads.com seems to expire in 5 hours or has some other form of limitation that kills me. Also is there a .zip download of gnu-gcc somewhere or not? Because that site appears to be an ftp list of downloads with only tar files.
Please help, thanks
