 Bigger Bigger  Smaller Smaller  Reset Reset

I was reading about using the Arduino as an ISP/ICSP. What wondered me, is the complexity of the wiring... And looking at the schematic of a board, I guess using a 1:1 1pin header cable between both boards ICSP connectors would do the trick just as good. Many people have 6 (or 10) pin header connectors/cables laying around anyway, so why don't show that option?

There are many things that could be improved on the arduino playground...

The problem is that you have to connect the reset pin of the target to another (general i/o pin) of the Arduino serving as the ISP.  So you could use a 6 pin-6 pin connecter with one wire spliced to go somewhere else, but that's more complicated to show in a simple illustration.

I was hoping they put a 28pin pdip and 40 pin pdip socket to the megaisp shield and add crystals and other stuff to make it a fully working avr programmer.

ISP page could really use some improvement indeed.

It would be nice to list proper SCK/MISO/MOSI pins to use for every official Arduino board as a programmer and as the target, or link to an article that does (which I haven't found to exist).
