Coding with Arduino questions Then moving to Atmel Studio 6


I have started writing and prototypes some code in the Arduino software which is great for prototyping, but I would need to move to Atmel studio 6 as I will need to program my atmelmega 168 IC which is built into my project and it will be using some other C++ coding for the other functions in the program.

How would I go around doing this ?

Would I just need to add the arduino header files into atmel studio 6 or is it harder than it.

... it will be using some other C++ coding...

The IDE can handle C++ coding.

You would need to compile the library code for the relevant libraries. I'm not sure how to do that exactly as I find the IDE works fine.
