    A long time ago, in the foggy recesses of my memory, someone had told me that
    "rolling your own" basic stamp II was easy. Get the parts, assemble and then
    insert some source code.

    I was wondering if anyone out there had this source code available or, as an
    alternative, knew of a program compiler out there that would take in BS2
    computer commands and turn them into PIC?

    Did not find anything on the parallax or microchip websites so I was curious.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Regards,

    I know http://www.rentron.com carries PicBasic Pro which does exactly what
    you are asking here...

    Try the download page at Parallax I'm sure the source code is there but
    can't remember if it's for the BSI or II

    Hi,
    I'm trying to introduce a friend to the Basic Stamp, and he has asked, do you
    have an emulator for the BS2?

    I can't remember it being discussed. Anyone know?
    Dave

    I was woundering if anyone knows of a good free emulator for the pc
    instead of using physical hardware?

    We have provided a BS1 emulator for some time. It is not 100% complete, but
    you can do some interesting exercise on it.

    http://www.awce.com/bs1emu.htm

    I often think of writing a BS2 version, but so little time...

    Depending on what you want to simulate, you might want to check
    out one or both of the following. While not free, they may be in
    your budget.

    eyeWyre Simulation Studio
    http://www.parallax.com/html_pages/downloads/software/eyeWyre.asp
    http://www.eyewyre.com

    Simulates BASIC Stamp 2 series microcontrollers as well as robots in
    a 3d physics environment

    Proteus VSM for BASIC Stamp
    www.labcenter.co.uk

    Simulates BASIC Stamp 2 microcontrollers in a schematic environment
  • A free one focused on rapid developement based on eclipse: www.github.com/EliasGroll/pbi :)
  • As far as I know, there has never been "free" simulator for the BS2 nor have I seen any documentation for the BS2 bytecodes. The format and function of the BS1 bytecodes have been described in a book, but not the BS2. The Proteus VSM must have been a private investigation. PicBasic Pro was pretty good when I tried it several years ago, but it's a compiler for a Basic dialect very similar to Stamp Basic and mostly compatible with it. It compiles to PIC code.
  • Mike,

    Brian Forbes wrote a book titled Inside the BASIC Stamp II that has a comprehensive list of the BS2 bytecodes.

    Hello Mike,

    pbi(www.github.com/EliasGroll/pbi) will support bs2 as well. we made a new logical concept that does not need any bytecode, but implements the complete virtual machine with all its functionality. in fact pbi is no "real" emulator at all, its more a unique programming language that operates on the virtual machine we implemented. to emulate the bs1 we modeled a virtual machine for the bs1 and implemented its syntax and commands. if you give us some time, too, there will be bs2 support. at the moment were optimizing the concept. we already have a live eeprom debugger, user input, dynamic & native debugging, code-testing, content assistance, auto indent and of course: the possibility to run your program without a microcontroller plugged in.
