Hello All! 1. Please note that the best way to get useful answers on the AVR GCC Forum is to follow some simple guidelines found in a tutorial written by Eric S. Raymond et al., How To Ask Questions The Smart Way: http://www.catb.org/~esr/faqs/smart-questions.html 2. Also, if the posted topic does not relate to one of the following:

    - The AVR GCC compiler, - Code compiled by the AVR GCC compiler, - Any of the related Open Source AVR tools (such as: avrdude, uisp, GDB, AVaRICE, SimulAVR, MFile, etc.)
then the topic may very well be moved to the appropriate forum by the moderators. In most instances a "shadow" topic will be left here on the AVR GCC Forum. About the only times where a "shadow" topic will not be left on the AVR GCC Forum is when the topic is not relevant to the AVR GCC Forum AND the topic is cross-posted to other forums AND there are no responses to the topic on the AVR GCC Forum, then the topic will be deleted on the AVR GCC Forum. Thanks, The AVR GCC Forum Moderators

Since Eric Raymond's document points out (at length) that anybody
ought to study the available documentation before posting a question,
here's a hint for the authoritative AVR-GCC related documentation.

Aside from the generic documentation about the GNU utilities (GCC,
make, binutils etc.), the avr-libc project -- being the only of all
these projects that is completely specific to the AVR target --
maintains documentation that aims to cover not only the library issues
but also the use of the entire toolchain. Thus, the FAQ for AVR-GCC
related issues is also maintained there.

WinAVR users do get all the documentation automatically installed onto
their hard disk as part of the normal installation process. Look in Start > Programs > WinAVR, or if installed there may be shortcut icons on your desktop for the various pieces of documentation. The TkInfo program will display most of the documentation, especially for: make, GNU Binutils, GCC, avrdude, GDB, and SimulAVR. The documention for avr-libc is in HTML and PDF, and the shortcut will launch the HTML version of the avr-libc documentation in a browser.

The official WWW home of the avr-libc docs is:

http://www.nongnu.org/avr-libc/user-manual/index.html

The FAQ itself is at:
