Parallax Basic Stamp question? Answered

Hi all!  I just found a parallax basic stamp at a price I couldn't really resist.  Now I am wondering if anyone who has worked with these micro-controllers knows of a good guide to learning the programming language that is free or rather cheap.  Thanks for your time!  :)

Go to the parallax site All of their Software including editors are free.
They sell connectors but also show you how to make your own
if you want .

If you get the full free editor, it has detailed explanations of each basic instruction and excellent examples to use and learn with. 
Enjoy your journey :-)

The boe-bot book is also a pretty good thing to have around if you plan on building a robot. It's free on the Parallax site, and teaches the language and how to use it with various sensors and hardware.

Go to their site as ICENG says and read through their documentation. It will tell you all you need to know for free.
