I need help reading info from a file (such as .txt) in BS2. Is it possible to do, Is there a command or anything that can help me out?

Hello,

Where would the BASIC Stamp be getting the file from that you want to read?

How would you get this file to the BS2? If you want to do this from a PC, have a look at Stamp Plot Pro (www.selmaware.com (http://www.selmaware.com)). If you want the BS2 to read the file from an SD card, there are devices from Hitt Consulting, Vinculum and GHI Electronics (see this thread: http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=644238). The same devices from Vinculum and GHI Electronics can read files stored on a USB thumb drive.
