END

Explanation

STOP prevents the BASIC Stamp from executing any further instructions until it is reset. The following actions will reset the BASIC Stamp:

  1. Pressing and releasing the RESET button on the development board.
  2. Driving the RES pin low then letting it float (high).
  3. Downloading a new program.
  4. Disconnecting then reconnecting the power.

STOP differs from END in two respects:

  1. STOP does not put the BASIC Stamp into low-power mode. The BASIC Stamp draws just as much current as if it were actively running program instructions.
  2. The output glitch that occurs after a program has been halted with END does not occur after a program that uses STOP.
