What's Marlin? (sorry, I'm late to this thread)

If your following this thread and trying to get a RepRap to work with a chipKIT board you might take a look at demitasse:

https://github.com/madscifi/demitasse

It doesn't compile in the latest release but I did get it to compile under MPIDE version 20120903.

I shouldn't have to fix and build the tool chain to program my HW. Unless I am creating the new use. I was told - Compatible. Oh, Hum.... :(
Try to run this code on an Arduino Due. I think you will probably find that that an Arduino Due is not compatible with an Arduino (AVR).

I agree that the compatibility claim was a marketing mistake, especially the early claims of 100% compatibility. It could have been handled better.

Its probably also a good idea to point out that MPIDE is not a Microchip product, but a community project that is developed and maintained by many individuals. Microchip and people that work there have been a great support in this effort.
