    Double that.

    Also noted that Darrel has moved from California?

    Hey Darrel,

    Any chance that some of your excellent code modules, like instant interrupts, LCD bargraphs, etc. etc. etc., might show up in a new version of PBP any time soon?

    I often wonder how long PBP can survive in this world of "arduiino" and C.
    I have been programming in basic every since I got my IBM PCjr back in 1985... and really have no desire(time) to learn a new language. But I think PBP could benifit from some publicity. The more people that use PBP the more healthy it will be in terms of support and such.

    I also think that it would be good to have some postings of PBP projects on places like hackaday.com, etc. to generate interest in this excellent PBP.

    These PIC's are like intricate puzzles just waiting for one to discover their secrets and MASTER their capabilities.

    There's a very good chance of that.
    And there's a good chance a lot more will be added too.

    The Arduino is just a toy platform for newbs.
    No self respecting company is going to develop their product with an Arduino.
    Most of melabs customers are serious commercial businesses.
    At least 90% of them are not hobbyists.

    I've talked to people from NASA, GM, Army, Air Force, TSA, DOT, which are the government agencies I can mention, and literally hundreds of other companies that I can't mention. And I've only been here 6 months.

    It's funny how many of them are using DT_INTS.
    I had no idea.

    That may be true... BUT many of those "newbs" will go on to be engineers, who will turn first to what they are familiar with when selecting a developement language. So if MELabs can generate more interest in PBP and attract the newbs now they may gain a more loyal following over on the commercial side.

    Question... is there a good percentage of commercial products that are developed using PBP?

    Final question... Can you possibly hint at when we might see this "new" version.

    Thanks!

    I think the Arduino is now just a "Form Factor", that allows you to plug similar boards together, with fair versatility, and little work.

    With boards like the Amicus18 that has the same "Form Factor" but uses a PIC, you can use PicBasic Pro, Proton, C, ASM or whatever with all those Arduino shields. It might have started with an ATMEL chip and pseudo C, but it's not limited to that anymore.

    Question... is there a good percentage of commercial products that are developed using PBP?
    Almost everyone I talk to is using PBP.
    Answering the melabs support calls has nothing to do with it.

    That information is Top Secret!
    So you can probably find it on Wiki Leaks.
