  1. Re: Communications Example : PC to PIC bi-directional dialogue

    I know not strictly to do with PIC Basic, but if anyone is interested, I rewrote this into ProtonBasic (Crownhill) :eek: and it works just fine. I'll post the code here when I'm on my own PC.

    Re: How about String Variables?

    Well, BANG goes my idea of making a Ethernet controlled device using PICBASIC to deliver the menus etc.

    I was an early adopter of this compiler, but to do what I need I'm moving over to Mikro C...

    Had the same problem, then I looked carefully at the circuit and laughed my head off!

    Like you I switched the POSITIVE side of the power....BAD MOVE..put the FET in the NEGATIVE rail so the...
