pbasic programming

Hi,
Can anyone tell me how to download code from and into the basic stamp.

Also, is there anyone that I can meet with to learn the programming basics, because our team needs some programming help.

Thanx

To download code you need to

go to Parallaxinc.com and get the latest Stamp2 support software (V1.3 -- it is free) (download the latest Stamp2 manual while you are there)

go to InnovationFirst.com to get the latest Default Code

go to the whitepaper section of this websit to get my paper on Innovation First Hardware & the Default Code (the seminar should be online at the Nasa site by now, but I have not checked)

look at the code and make chances you feel are needed

connect your computer and the RC via a 9 pin connector

download the code

cross your fingers as you hit robot reset to run your code.

ask us here specific questions as you run into problems.

Good luck.

Very important step

You forgot a very important step:

When you hit the reset button on your robot, make sure everyone's a safe distance away from the bot, and have someone ready to pull the power plug on the player station controller (or hit the estop if your team has one). Regardless of how good a programmer you are, you'll make mistakes & some could be dangerous to people or the bot.

Re: pbasic programming

You also ask how to download code FROM the BASIC Stamp. This is not possible.

Since programs downloaded to the robot controller are tokenized by the BASIC Stamp Editor, if the capability were provided, at best you would get a simple detokenization of the program. (i.e. all the meaningful identifiers in the original source code would be replaced by insipid generic names, and any comments in the original code would be gone with the the wind.)

To expand on Mike's comment, if you've done any work on the driving software (and maybe even if you haven't), it is a wise idea to prop the bot up so its drive mechanism isn't in contact with the ground. I am the programmer on my team, and I have witnessed what happens when there is an error in the drive software and the robot is on the ground. Simply stated, bad things happened (luckily no one was injured and the robot was okay). Just advice from someone who's been there.
