# Suicidal Picaxe Program

Here's what happens on a Picaxe 28x1 in a project board when you connect pin C.7 to the Reset pin. Check out areas F and H in this photo.

The reset function in a Pic(axe) is made so that when it is pulled low, the chip resets. An on-board 4700 Ω resistor keeps the pin high during normal operation. The little button pulls it down.

This Picaxe really is stuck in a moment and refuses to believe:

#picaxe28x1
#no_data

#no_table
pause 500

dirsc = %00000000   pinsc = %00000000

Until you remove the orange wire.

Now why would I want to do this when there is a perfectly fine "reset" command in the fine manual?

Well, some day I might want to be able to reset a Picaxe, using another Picaxe. Make sure to common your grounds Rik!
