ok understood.. but im curious .. how does the basic stamp 2sx manage to allow programs to be stored in slots
to clarify ..
i CAN add an eeprom to my SX to store data...... ( i am storing many strings and such in the bs2sx )
Yes, Serial EEPROMs can provide you with vast amounts of space for little money (128Kx8 ~$10-$20), a·few I/O pins at speeds that still runs circles around a stamp.
from your experience you have managed to write very serious code within the limits of the SX 2k limit ?
Yes, I have not seen anyone complain about lack of program space in an SX in the forums by experienced programmers since I became·active in the forums last July. Though I believe I read a while back·someone migrated to an SX52 for more code space when they found the·SX28 didn't have enough.·
am i correct in assuming that .. done correctly you can fit quite a complicated program even with SX/B code into the sx memory?
Yes, look out for the contest submissions that should be posted very soon, or check out Bean's SX-video display module.·
i also assume that assembly mixed in there will allow even more code to be put inside ..
Yes, SX/B is an unoptimized basic compiler
