Question PBasic 2.5 vs. 2.0

I am a rookie programmer and so far have taught myself all of the code for PBasic 2.0. Looking at the codes posted, I have noticed that 2.5 is much simpler and If/Then(and, in 2.5, else) statements are MUCH easier. I have 2 questions. First, is there any advantage to PBasic 2.0 over 2.5? Secondly, do you need a certain onboard processor to support PBasic 2.5 or do all of them support 2.5 and 2.0?

Thanx,
Anthony

2.5 is a very early version. It is possible there are compiler bugs. Compiler bugs + experimental coding are often bad. Is it the code, your logic, or the compiler that is bad?

I'm not having any problems, and i have the compiler, but i was just wonderingn if ther are any advantages to 2.0 over 2.5 (besides already knowing 2.0 fairly well and not wanting to learn a new language halfway through the building session)?

There isn't a real advance or disadvance to either 2.0 or 2.5. The difference is with the programmer, which are you more comfortable with? You technically can do the same things with each, IMHO 2.5 is easier to do most things.

To the processer is makes no difference, both 2.0 and 2.5 are tokenized into the same machine code for the processer to understand. As stated above you need the newest editor to be able to Tokenize 2.5.

Other than that, you make the call as to which will do what you want it to.

Help this helps!

Jeff Rice's post is why my team decided to stick with the 2.0 syntax and old compiler. That is pretty much the only advantage, though.

Smile thanx

Thanx for the help. I think next year i may convert to 2.5, but seeing as i already know 2.0 and there is no advantage to 2.5 (that and they are still working out some of the bugs).

Thanx again.
