Subject: Re: Basic Stamp vs Pic processors
> Hi Jim,

> After you buy the compiler, you can purchase the "bare" PIC chips for

> There is a free demo "on-line" compiler for MELabs PicBasic -

> Only downside (for me) is no Floating Point, LOGx, or Exponent math

> - and Tracy Allen has LOGx code written for the Stamp.
> I've heard good things about BascomAVR too, if you choose to use those
