Have about three questions. Here's the first one.
This is for a Stamp DIP or OEM on a breadboard not a dev board like Homework board.
If you add outputs, inputs, keypad and an LCD what do you have?
Seems like it's a foundation for doing more experiments. A little system or workstation.
Book I'm using is having you learn to build those things.
I know Parallax boards use Terminal in place of LCD more or less.
This is 90's and early 2000's approach. I know things are shuffled around a little with new packages now.
Edit. Development Platform?
