AVR calculator example program

This program retrieves (waits for) two numbers from the terminal connected to UART1, and sends back the result. It uses the uart1SendByte() and uart1GetByte() functions from uart2.c that is part of AVRlib. It works with Cerebot and BlueSmirf modules, see Cerebot & LEGO Mindstorms.

The whole project can be downloaded here: avr_calc.zip.

A follow-up version that is utilizing getchar implementation with line editor from stdiodemo WinAVR example program has more convenient input editing (BACKSPACE, DEL, and some more features work). This new version is available here: avr_calc_ed.zip.
