FlexBASIC on P1

Finally got to try this....very 😎
Love the nice clean FlexProp IDE.

I need serial, I²C, SPI, etc. Anyone successfully used existing objects?

    Scan the FlexProp docs for using SPIN, PASM and C with BASIC.
    Hooking FDS to BASIC's file I/O commands:
    $ cat FDS_with_BASIC.bas 
    dim ser2 as class using "spin/FullDuplexSerial.spin"
    ser2.start(31, 30, 0, 115200)
    open SendRecvDevice( @ser2.tx, @ser2.rx, @ser2.stop ) as #2
    for i=1 to 3
      print #2,"Hi! (printed via FullDuplexSerial.spin)"+chr$(13)
      pausems 100
    next i
    close #2
    
    $ /opt/propellertools/bin/flexspin -O2 FDS_with_BASIC.bas

    Well that's what made me aware of the possibility. I was hoping for confirmation that this works without having to find out the hard way.

    I have used monochrome and colour VGA graphics (via Spin), FullDuplexSerial.spin and lots of the C libs in BASIC. So far no I2C or SPI but I'm ॐmmmptimistic that it will work too.

    Many thanks indeed. Your first reply only came up as a single line, earlier but now I see the quoted stuff :+1:
