When people refer to Basic Stamp 2P timing diferences, what is meant by this?
Is it merely the fact that the stamp is faster that the BS2 model chip?

Do you just have to compensate BS2 code when going though loops (where it is calculating time in measurement?

Is this the only caveat when dealing with the BS2P chip??

The BS2p is faster than other BASIC Stamp models, so some timing related functions us different units values -- these are all documented in our manual. The ONE exception is PAUSE; the PAUSE function works in milliseconds for every BASIC Stamp model. The advantage of using the faster BS2p is that you get better resolution for functions like PULSIN (0.8 us version 2.0 us on the BS2).

No, I was referring to the our BASIC Stamp Syntax & Reference Manual: http://www.parallax.com/dl/docs/prod/stamps/web-BSM-v2.2.pdf
