View->Other. Then, click on the AVR drop-down and select
AVR Device Explorer. Experiment with this and the AVR
Supported MCUs view, as well.
If you don’t want the tab to be down at the bottom
(the default), simply drag the tab to the top, left, or right
side and it will reside there for you.
Again, type everything exactly (as before) and you will
get your plug-in. Oddly, I’ve found that sometimes when I
clicked on OK the button would highlight but not select. I’d
have to hit Enter to actually select the button. This may be
something odd in my install, however. I’m a Mac OS X kind
of guy so I’m familiar with its quirks. I’m only now learning
the Linux and Windows “issues.”
That wraps up my column for this month. I hope you
find something that you can use in your robotic endeavors.
As usual, if you have a robotics related question, please
drop me a line at firstname.lastname@example.org and I’ll do
my best to answer it. Have fun! SV
