View Full Version : PBasic programming without the Stamp (attached to the compuiter).

08-22-2006, 06:47 PM
I am doing a college project and which involves PBasic programming.
I have downloaded Basic stamp editor 2.2.5 but what I understand is that I can't run the code without the Stamp (attached to the compuiter). So, that means that it is not really possible for me to learn PBasic because I do not have the stamop at home.

I am wondering if there is a way to learn PBasic without the Stamp..? Maybe a PBasic simulation kind of software so that I can understand better what the command does..?

I am quiet new to PBasic.

You can download the Basic Stamp manual, as well as all of the Stamps in Class course manuals from Parallax's website. There are also some good tutorials on the Educational downloads page.

Also, if you're looking for a low-cost way to get started, try the Basic Stamp Activity Kit:

You can order it from Parallax, or find it at many RadioShack stores in the US.

You can still learn to program with the manual and Pbasic (and it's helpfile)....when you press F9 (or RUN) for your program, it'll try to compile it at the start and will tell you if you have errors.
This isn't an emulator. So you can get some mileage with it, just maybe not what you're after.

Both of the following products should fit the bill.

Based on the info on the Mobotsim website, the answer is no, it's not related in anyway to PBasic.
