AVRDUDE reads a configuration file upon startup which describes all of the parts and programmers that it knows about. The advantage of this is that if you have a chip that is not currently supported by AVRDUDE, you can add it to the configuration file without waiting for a new release of AVRDUDE. Likewise, if you have a parallel port programmer that is not supported by AVRDUDE, chances are good that you can copy and existing programmer definition, and with only a few changes, make your programmer work with AVRDUDE.
AVRDUDE first looks for a system wide configuration file in a platform
dependent location. On Unix, this is usually
/usr/local/etc/avrdude.conf, while on Windows it is usally in the
same location as the executable file. The name of this file can be
changed using the ‘-C’ command line option. After the system wide
configuration file is parsed, AVRDUDE looks for a per-user configuration
file to augment or override the system wide defaults. On Unix, the
per-user file is
.avrduderc within the user’s home directory. On
Windows, this file is the
avrdude.rc file located in the same
directory as the executable.
