I'm new to using Atmel microcontrollers and GNU GCC Compilers. I have a fair amount of experience using Microchip PIC microcontrollers and the CCS PCM PIC C Compiler. I thought it's about time to see what the Atmel chips are all about.
I'm looking for some guidance about getting my Atmel setup working properly. I have a mkII and STK500.
A few questions...
1) The CCS PIC compiler that I am used to comes with many microcontroller specific build in functions like the following. Are there similar functions in GNU CCC? If not, are there add on libraries that have similar functions? Could someone recommned one?
set_adc_channel( 1 )
2) I noticed that after installing AVR Studio I have the choice to make a project with "AVR GCC". Is this just a place holder/configuration for when/if you install the GNU CCC Compiler? Or does AVR Studio come with the GNU CCC compiler built in? Does WinAVR install a different C compiler then?
