Ok so now that my hardware is all working and ive verified i can get my design running at 112 mhz no problem, its on to learning to actually use this thing for something other than lighting an LED lol.

Anyways last night I was reading through the help file that came with the prop tool, it has some good tutorials in it, Today while out an about I opened up the prop manual pdf on my nook and realized the manual and help v1.2 are different. The pdf manual doesnt have all the tutorials just a reference section which is great but not really to helpful for the beginner. I would like the to take the help file with me on my nook especially tomorrow Im going to LA and have about 5 hours to kill there. Does anyone know if there is a pdf version of the help file or at least the PASM and SPIN tutorials? Windows help files arent a very universal format unfortunately...

Go download calibre for ebook management. Tell it you have a nook and it should automatically convert any file you add to epub.

Are you looking for a pdf of the older Propeller Manual?

It's available on the Propeller Downloads (http://www.parallax.com/tabid/832/Default.aspx)page.

Ok well calibre wont work, the help file is an exe..

No when you install the prop tool there is a file called propeller help in the reference folder, inside the parallax folder on the start menu. This file is also at ver 1.2 it seems to be an exe that is compiled with windows help. It contains totally diffrent content than the propeller manual, Ive checked the downloads page and I dont see any copys of this file in other formats..

Looks like a system called WebHelp. I decoded the Toc to an HTML file that Clibre can understand and am converting the book now. If the output looks reasonable, I'll post the epub.

Download 91152 and rename it to prop.epub, and put it on the Nook. It should read fine.

So, did anyone wind up using this translation I did? Did it work?
