Hi,
I wish to download spin objects to a Propeller from another microprocessor and wondered if there is a specification for the download protocol that the propeller uses. Any help much appreciated.

@Sanderling

There is an object in the object exchange that does just that. It downloads a program from one prop to another. There is also a couple of programs that people have written (I think one in VB and one in Perl or Python) that download files from a PC or MAC. Parallax has not released a specification, but, between these you should find what you want. I think there is also a page on the propeller wiki about this.

Also do a forum search and check the Propeller Wiki. The protocol has been discussed in detail and there are a number of third-party applications which have used it.
