I'd like to set up·a bs2p so that it begins running it's program as after being given the command by·another bs2p. I was figuring that if I hook uo one of the i/o pins to the vcc on the second unit this might be feasable. Any ideas?

Thanks,

Damion

Hello,

·· If you're talking about using an I/O line to power the target BASIC Stamp module (Vdd), you cannot do it directly.· The only way this could be done is if you controlled a MOSFET to switch the power.· It seems as though you could simplify everything by simply having the target BASIC Stamp module sit in a loop until an I/O line changed states and then run its code.
