Hi Britton,

While I like your idea for this project, I have to point out a few things.

- Writing C for the AVR is not exactly new. There's a lot of projects out there 
that do exactly that, and there are a lot of people that have done this. This 
is both good and bad. It's good in that you can draw upon a lot of other 
people's experience in this area to improve your project. It's bad in that you 
might already be re-inventing the wheel in some areas.

- The AVR Freaks website (www.avrfreaks.net) has a Forum on there specifically 
for user-written Tutorials. You should take a look at those.

- The WinAVR package already has a sample Makefile that should work for almost 
any generic C project. Again, you should take a look at this, as the sample 
Makefile is in the Public Domain.

- Your angle on this is C language for the Arduino boards. Looking at it from 
this perspective, the Arduino becomes just another generic board with an AVR on 
it. Many other people have built generic boards with AVRs on it and sell it. 
The one advantage that the Arduino boards have is its current popularity.

I'm saying these things not to discourage you. But with the intent to make you 
aware that you're entering into a wider world now, more than just the Arduino 
community, and that this is path that has been traveled by many, many other 
embedded systems engineers. You don't have to start from scratch. Get in 
contact with available similar resources. You can probably join forces with 
many other people.
