Is there a directive to indicate PE simulation

Is there a directive or 'debug' action that would only invoke code when running in the simulator.

The reason is for i/o operations that cant be simulated (can they?) I could insert code or values to simulate an input while testing the program.

eg
Actual code:
OWIN OW_Net,ownoreset,(Time1_1,Time1_2,Time2_1,Time2_2)

What I would like
OWIN OW_Net,ownoreset,(Time1_1,Time1_2,Time2_1,Time2_2)
[PE mode only] Time1_1=$xxxx:Time1_2=$xxxx .....
.
.
.


Currently I put in a line to create values but have to remember to comment it out before downloading (fraught with danger with my memory)

thanks
Allan

This forum seems appropriate so I'll leave it here.

There is no automatic option for determining when in simulation mode but you can use conditional compilation; add a #DEFINE SIMULATED at the top of your code and use #IFDEF SIMULATED. #IFNDEF SIMULATED, #ELSE and #ENDIF to conditionally compile code for a real chip or simulation. The "SIMULATED" can be any name you want to choose.

Code:
#Define SIMULATED
Do
  #IfDef SIMULATED
    SerTxd( "Simulated", CR, LF )
  #Else
    SerTxd( "Real PICAXE chip", CR, LF )
  #EndIf
Loop

I thought it might be the case.
Maybe it could be considered because there are a few instances I've come across where the simulator is different from the real thing.

Thanks very much for the reply
