What is the best way to go about a uC programmer tool?

a) make one specially for the microcontroller being used
or
b) buy a universal programmer.

Thanks,
Jameske

The best choice is A, depending on the microcontroller it may help debug code too.
I would suggest changing choice A slightly,

a) Buy one specially for the microcontroller being used

If your competent in building electronics then making one is an option.

Looks like it will be A (with the moderations from Pommie)!

Thanks to all for your thoughts and suggestions. They are very helpful.
As I am a beginner all I can do is learn and experiment!

You still didn't answer the question, what do you wish to program?

I'm not too sure yet, I'm just trying to figure out the best and cheapest way of programming/using uCs (doing my homework on it all...so to speak...)!

Thanks again,
Jameske
