Is there any relationship between what I can do (other than cost) between
the Basic Stamp and any number of Pic's?
What I mean is that I feel I need to come up to speed in hobby hardware
design by using programmable chips. I don't presently own any Basic Stamps
and haven't done any Pic programming, although I have used Pics in several
projects....I've been able, so far, to get hold of the HEX code and have
someone else load it into the chip.
I do programming in Quickbasic, but no assembler, but I have investigated
PicBasic in case I want to go that route. I REALLY don't want to learn a
new language at my age for something that I will just be using
I see on the web a good bit of BS2 code for the Basic Stamp for projects I
am interested in. Is this code portable over to Pics in any way? I
wouldn't mind investing in Stamp stuff to do some development and
breadboarding, but wouldn't want to buy a Basic Stamp to go into every
project I build.
