Hi,

Has anyone attempted to write a AvrStudio "xxx.APR" Project
file to AVR-GCC ".makefile" converter?
Something that checks the .APR file, then rewrites .makefile,
just before a recompile would be really excellent!

I might be able to hack something together IF I had the
file structure available for the various .APR versions.

I just don't want to spend decades reverse engineering
something that should be easily+freely available ;)

Thanks,
Mu'ath

Yes, I did it for AVRStudio 3.5x. It worked okay, but I never completrely finished it, as AVRStudio 4.0 was just about to be released, and would have this apart from all it other features.
As we all know now, AVRStudio 4.0 is just a load of bugs, and the C-compiler supports and the much tooted Open Architecture, seems to be a few years in the future.

I'll see if I can dig it up.

The quick black AVR jumped over the lazy PIC.
What boots up, must come down.

I would also be very interested in any information you choose to share about this conversion. I am using avr-gcc to develop test code for a new controller board based on the '128 and other engineers are showing interest in moving away from IAR, as I have. I would like to encourage them by making it a little easier to transition.
Thanks!

Hi,

I'll have a look at the ".APR" files sometime soon...

I just don't understand why Atmel will not go open-source
with their AvrStudio's.
You know how brilliant it would be if AvrStudio ran
on a stable Linux box!

I think a good deal of the bugs in AvrStudio4 are
actually due to MSWindows' "new" technology ;)

Imagine running a JTAG or ICE on Linux with AvrStudio...

Anyway, dreams aside, I'll still persue a makefile genny...
