attiny85 WITHOUT arduino

hi everybody

i'm going to leave in holidays and i have not receive my arduino board yet. So i would like to know if it's possible to program a attiny85 with something else ?



yea, any avr programmer

you might be able to bit bang it with ponyprog, as its listed as a new (but untested) feature

hum ok what i need to do that ? language like arduino ?

and with an usb tiny ?

I use an AVRISP or STK500 programmer and AVR Studio IDE.


language doesnt really matter, your building what you want and using a programmer to transfer a hex file
