Is there an official errata page for the Propeller web manual?

In particular, the description of cmpsub appears to be wrong. (p.363, "if Value2 is equal to or greater than Value1 then it is subtracted from Value1." -- s/greater/less/)

Hello Cliff,

There is no sticky-thread or web page for Propeller Manual Errata; you may send any items directly to me at editor@parallax.com (mailto:editor@parallax.com).

As I recieve·items I pass them to the author for review and keep a running list for the next revision of the manual.·Significant technical errata will be compiled into a pdf document for download that is kept with the Propeller Manual download on our website, and updated as needed.

So far we have had very little feedback in that regard, but we can start with yours!··Does anyone else have·any errata·items to contribute? If so, please send them·directly to my email.

Thanks everyone,

Update from the Propeller Manual author Jeff Martin, regarding page 363:


Hi Stephanie,

He is right.

The first sentence in·EXPLANATION should be "...if·Value2 is equal to or less than Value1..."

The last paragraph's mention of the C flag should be changed to the following:· "If the WC effect is specified, the C flag is set (1) if a subtraction is possible (Value1 is equal to or greater than Value2)."


We will be posting an errata sheet for download next week.· If you have any items for us, email them to me please!

So far with the Hydra, I have only found small typos [Like Figure 1.8 referred to as Figure 1.3].

But does this errata go to the same or is that to Andre LaMothe?
