Too late to add Imagecraft to the poll?

Maybe a moderator can add Imagecraft. I forgot about it. Unfortunately, I can no longer list it in the poll.

I don't use an IDE, so even something else does not apply.

I write code with whatever I wish and compile in command prompt. Depending on if on Windows or Linux I have different editors to write code. I think I have Code::Blocks "IDE" working with AVR-GCC compiler though.

No IDE. Emacs, make, avr-gcc and avrdude.

Atmel Studio 6 is not worthy of a separate entry and gets votes in the "something else" category ?

I have chosen 'something else'. I've been using Eclipse for 2,5 years. I'm satisfied with this one. I see some IDE use Eclipse as a base, adding their own interface.
Yeah, Eclipse is slightly slow on old PCs, but I have been running it on ASUS X51/RL (2008) and it goes well.
This IDE I use for AVR, PC, ARM programming.

IMHO Emacs qualifies as a (quite fine) IDE .. what I "grew up with" and also have used it with AVR invoking make within the editor, etc.

It should work - bot-thoughts.com

Had I the choice, I would have checked both AVRStudio and Arduino IDE since I use both a lot.

I'd like to use Eclipse on Mac, but have never gotten simulation and debugging to work. So, I use Studio6 on Windows in VirtualBox.

Like in real voting can one vote more than once? ie more using than 1 IDE.

edit hmmm won't let me....

2nd edit so I voted for Studio because I use it pretty much for everything EXCEPT production where I use OTHER as in keyfob programmers. So I would have programmed more chips using OTHER than Studio I think, but I use Studio more often.

I was going to ask pretty much the same question. What do you use for keyfob programmer?

I'd like to know which keyfob programmer you use as well.

Edit: I use Studio for everything...Why? I don't know no better.

People like Kanda and others make keyfobs for AVR, however I use the one that Mike Henning made and offered here and many of us bought them for about $15 each.

I got 2 more after the first purchase but it was the last 2 he was going to make I think as some parts were no longer available from memory.

I guess I'm just an old confused guy. Tell me what "programming" means. My first read is ISP or similar "get the program into the AVR". But others seem to think it is "the act of writing a program for an AVR". That, then, would lead me to think that the question/poll has to do with what editor is used.

Then I look at the choices, and it appears that the question really has to do with toolchain? And compiler? Given the choices it appears that the OP assumes we are all using C and C compilers--and those that don't use one of the toolchains for....what? Editing the source? Kicking off a build/compile? Doing the ISP?

Here on 'freaks I imagine you'll find the vast majority of users are GCC [either via Studio, or "sosmething else" as there is no standard IDE for GCC]

Writing code is like having sex.... make one little mistake, and you're supporting it for life.

UltraEdit for my IDE. Course most of my projects are assembly.

I use the studio. I like how it "automatically" knows where all the ports and gizmos are for the selected chip.

Tell me what "programming" means. +1

Why are you looking ?
Do you want to find the fastest Write-Code :: Compile :: Test loop ?

I for one would be interested in finding the answer to that one.

In AS6, that is a single command thing - [/Debug/Start without debugging]. The default shortcut is Alt+D H.

BASCOM would belong in that list only if the question was on software languages rather than IDEs. As written, the implication of the poll was a language-independent IDE and that would limit the candidates to about 4 or so.
Programmer's Notepad being one, Eclipse (yuck), Makefiles and the command line (that's a sorta-IDE), the product-specific IDEs in commercial compilers.

Ah, IAR just came out with an option to use either their IDE or Eclipse with their backend compiler (C/C++ only).

39 is a miserably small sample on which to reach any meaningful conclusion.
