I'm working with a digital servo project, based on a ATmega8. I started programming the mega8 in assembler (AVR studio) but now I realize I might have to switch to C.
Now I just wonder how well AVR GCC (WinAVR) performs compared to commercial compilers like Imagecraft, CodeVisionAVR, etc. Is there any point in paying for other compilers when AVR GCC is free?
PS I have used & programmed AVRs for some years, but I'm new to AVR C programming...
