Does anyone know how to connect any eeprom IC to a PICAXE microcontroller?

Also, I want to know 2 things

1) Is it necessary to have one attach to PICAXE microcontroller
2) Also, what's the purpose of having an eeprom IC connected to a PICAXE microcontroller?

picaxe's have their own program space and a small amount of operating memory so there is no need to have one.

The purpose behind using another eeprom with a picaxe is to allow you to store more data than the picaxe can normally hold.

My advice would be to do a few projects with the picaxe alone to better understand how it works and how to program it then try and use external memory. At first it can seem quite simple but you will have to know how to organise the data effectively on the external memory in order for it to be useful.
