when you compile code and upload it to the boe-bot using the supplied software, does it permanetly store it in the bots memory? or does it get over-written everytime you program it? and if it is stored, how do i clear it?

    When you reprogram the BASIC Stamp anything that was previously in the EEPROM is overwritten -- you don't have to clear it. The only time I recommend clearing is when going from one set of hardware to another; by clearing the program memory you can make sure that all IO pins are made inputs (safe). You can clear the BASIC Stamp memory with one line of code:
