For some time I have been discovering that the "cog" is being reinvented after the work has been done. So I have decided to create a thread that we can all maintain to index what Prop Tools we are·developing, by whom, and a link to that thread.

Your post to this thread should contain:

1.· The Title of your project
2.· A short description of your project
3.· A link to the thread containing discussions and code for your project
4.· (optional) Where your project is up to.. (development/test code/release code)


The following are the posts listed below (in order) as at 07 April 2010 (please let me know of any errors)...

    DIY C Compiler for the Propeller

    A toolchain which will allow the free LCC compiler to be used for C programming of the Propeller.

    The toolchain will create self-contained executables for download into the Propeller chip or C programmed objects to be incorporated within and used by a Spin program. It is a command line toolchain but designed to be easily callable by GUI front-ends or IDE's. Primary goal is creating small executables rather than delivering high speed of execution.

    Proof of concept and prototype working. Components are currently being re-written, improved and enhanced ( Sep 2008 ).

    PowerBasic plus VB6 front end. 32-bit MS-DOS. Pre-built executables plus source code available. Licensing to be decided, probably MIT or similar permissive license.

    MS-DOS / VB6 / Windows 98 Support Tools

    Tools to enhance the use of the Propeller for 32-bit MS-DOS, VB6 and Windows 98 users.

    1) Command line and GUI downloader for the Propeller chip.

    2) A Propellent.OCX wrapper ( and associated files ) for using Propellent.Dll easily within a VB6 project for compilation and also downloader ability for Windows 98 ( and above ) which Propellent.Dll does not support.

    Proof of concept completed. Development ongoing ( part of the DIY C Compiler project ).

    PowerBasic plus VB6. Pre-built executables plus source code available. MIT licensed.

    Basic Stamp Propeller

    A downloadable software emulator which will allow a developer to program in PBASIC, use the Basic Stamp development tools and use the Propeller as if it were a Basic Stamp.

    Will emulate the BS1 and, hopefully, BS2, but requires further R&D in that direction.

    Proof of concept and prototype working. Project queued behind others.

    Spin, PASM plus LMM. Deliverables to be decided; downloadable .binary will be provided but the project may not be 'open source' in whole or part. Licensing to be decided.

    bst - Native IDE with compiler built in for Linux i386 / MacOS PPC & Intel.
    http://forums.parallax.com/showthread.php?p=755835

    The bst suite is a cross platform, platform native toolset. The bst IDE contains an embedded version of the bstc compiler.

    The bstc compiler has the ability to load a propeller and create a zipped propeller source archive, it has basic port autodetection and allows specifying directly a propeller device to load.

    All command line tools are verified to work on OSX 10.4/10.5 PPC & Intel and are universal binaries.

    the Win32 builds of the tools are verified to work on Win95/Win98 and lightly tested on WinXP

    Linux command line tools are static binaries with no additional library requirements and will run on any intel processor from a 486, on a 2.4 kernel right up to the latest and greatest.

    The IDE is currently lacking a Linux x86_64 build, however this is being looked at.

    bstc implements the @@@ extension to Spin and allows direct bytecode insertion into spin methods with BYTECODE(). No other spin extensions are currently supported.

    Having some practice, it's a matter of copy and paste. Go to the cmap tools homepage and take a look around. I think, CMaps are better than Mindmaps and one of the best things, that came from the states during the last 8 years. It's nearly that, what V.Bush proposed!

    Apologize: not mentioned the propeller. That is a different world.

    V.Bush is the Bush with the single U and the broad view, not the one with the double U and the singular view. If U are interested, there is a link neondata.com/P/Acro0638

    ViewPort Visual Debugger
    ViewPort consists of a library of objects for the Parallax Propeller and a Graphical User Interface that helps you:
    - debug code by viewing variable values over time
    - control an embedded system from your desktop
    - tune and calibrate constants
    - interface with other hardware by viewing timing in logic analyzer mode
    - take measurements with the DSO, LSA, Spectrum Analyzer, Data Logger...
    - integrate PC with real time data acquisition and control (SCADA)
    - interface with hardware like sensors, motors...
    - monitor internal state of a robot as you control it
    - use a fuzzy logic engine with graphical control panel
    - capture and process video with vision filters

    ViewPort can be integrated into any spin program, it requires one cog and a single line of code at the start of your program. It's easy to get started with plenty of tutorials, videos and documentation. It is also configurable and extensible so you can customize it to your needs.

    Several threads- search for "ViewPort"...
    Manual, videos, and free 30 day download available at:

    PropCMD 2.0 with PropFAT, a full featured command line interpreter and file system, suitable as the basis for more complex projects. By "full-featured" I mean it will fully support (already written) subdirectories, the DOS read-only and hidden attribute bits, proper DOS wildcards with ? and * as DOS uses them, multiple files open at once limited only by buffers reserved at compile time, and (pending) I/O redirection and multi cog function access. This means, practically, that from the command line you can issue a command like copy basedir\*.txt bakdir\*.b and while these 100 files are being copied meanwhile another cog can be quietly logging data to another file. Projected alpha release in a few weeks but as in everything that depends on how often the phone rings LOL.

    Edit 8/15/09 -- I've suspended work on this because I'm working on something much bigger, TBA.

    Easily create programs by dragging blocks together. The library of ~100 blocks makes it easy to build games, robots and more. All the complexity of cogs, objects, memory and variables is handled for you- leaving you free to focus on your code. Comes with ~10 sample
    programs, a 20 page tutorial, a 30 page manual, videos, and a wiki illustrating what others have accomplished.
    Perfect complement for the "Parallax Demo Board" for beginners- but powerful and extensible enough for anyone.
