    Never said anything about the hardware, which by the way is very impressive, having WiFi, Bluetooth etc on a low price board. A really dream board, either Pi or other flavors.

    I for one, am a guy that started with Basic and found it very difficult to jump over to C.

    Tried many times but seems too difficult...

    I agree, the specs are no near anything in PIC or even Arduino world.

    But, will you trust such a board for a professional application? I know you are doing it for hobby, but others will be more...

    Re: Programming RFM radio modules in Basic

    SPI is not RS232. Sure Richard spot it. You need to revise your connections.

    Also, your caps around the crystal, what values are?

    This is not fair.

    Have you checked this: http://www.picbasic.co.uk/forum/content.php?r=5

    Many good examples and a lot of info.

    I don't know about other members of the forum, but I got confused.

    Best throw in both codes that work and don't work.

    Do they compile OK?

    Are you sure about your connections?

    Depends. If you care about minimum current as is the case in battery operated devices, then yes. Do set them as inputs with proper pull up enabled inside the PIC or a large size output.

    No the program itself but on the total current consumption as the CMOS do not like to be float.

    I have my doubts on leaving inputs floating.

    Usually if I have any unused ports, I turn them as outputs and clear them.

    If they are inputs, maybe enable the pull ups if any or tie them to...

    Re: EEPROM Issue

    Local vars is a dream (and in wish list) for PBP.

    I think with a bit of creativity, structures can be implemented with arrays in PBP also.

    Not specific to data structures though.

    This makes me wondering, how can one follow every detail in a large program.

    Too many variables and chances are something will go wrong.

    This is a bad programing.

    You use a gosub to main but there is no return from the main.

    Delete the line gosub main as there is no point.

    Be very careful with such commands, as it is common...
