I need to compile spin code to a bin image? thanks

If by "stand alone" you mean one that runs on the Propeller itself, no. There isn't one.

There are three Spin compilers that all will produce a binary image. One is the Parallax Tool which runs under Windows only. The second is BradC's which comes in an IDE version with an editor and a command line version. It comes in a version for Windows, Linux, and the MacOS. There's another "Homespun" command line compiler by mpark that runs under Windows and Linux.

If I read your question correctly, Parallax's Propellent (http://www.parallax.com/ProductInfo/Microcontrollers/PropellerGeneralInformation/PropellerDownloads/PropellentLibraryandExecutable/tabid/650/Default.aspx) program may be what you're looking for. It can run from a DOS command line and produce the .bin and .eeprom files.

See link below (in my signature - the Prop Tools one) for information on the threads for the standalone compilers referred to by Mike Green

thanks guys sorry for the confusion. I meant stand alone as in not needing the· propellor tool IDE I need to be able to compile spin code to a bin file that I can burn to eprom.

@mikediv (copy of my answer to your PM):
There are 4 compilers that can output to a bin file or an eeprom file:

PropTool - when you click on the Run/Compile Top/View Info.. will give you the optin to save to either type of file.
This is parallax (windows) so probably the easiest.

Homespun - I think you can get a binary. It does eeprom by default. Runs from Dos command line, give it "-?" to list options. The IDE is by Praxis.

bstc - Likewise I think you can get a binary. This works on windows, unix, mac. Not sure of its options.

Propellent - is a windows dll from parallax that will also compile.

This thread will give you the links to homespun and bstc.
