help needed for ATTiny 85

by I_am_bad_at_this on Sun May 18, 2008 2:23 pm

so i would love to begin programing an ATtiny 85 for something (begginer right now) like turning an led on and off with a transistor. I have AVR mac pak, AVR-ISP programmer, AVR-GCC, and AVRdude. i looked at Evil mad scientist for how to make a target board. If i do get it connected correctly, how (what programing language) do i write that (text editor?). I remember getting a compiler ladyada suggested, how do i use tht to make a .hex file? what are fuses and how do i set/use them? do i want to use a crystal/oscilator ( i remember hearing there is an internal one that is not that great)? if someone could help me out or give me a resource that would be great!

You might want to take a look at these links. http://www.ladyada.net/learn/avr/ and the "Beginning Embedded Electronics" tutorial at http://www.sparkfun.com/commerce/hdr.php?p=tutorials
