I have not seen anywhere where there is the ability to read the program that is in the bs2's. you know,·http://forums.parallax.com/images/smilies/eyes.gif just in case the program on your computer got deleted. if this has been answered before, forgive me, maybe a pointer in the direction where i can find the answer? by the way, this is probably one of the best groups i have run across for answering questions, even about other products. keep up the good work.

Yup, answered often. No, it's difficult to get the data out of the eeprom on the BS2. If you DO get the data out, it's in the form of "Pbasic Tokens" (integers), which select run-time routines hard-coded into the PIC processor -- meaning all 'meaningful' labels and constants will have been replaced with numbers.

So, don't lose your source code.

Old adage: Save early; save often. We've all learned this lesson the hard way.
