control motor speed

This must be a dumb question, but isn't it possible to control the speed of a motor? I am playing around with the picaxe 28, and as far as i can tell, there is only on/off. I had imagined i could control how much power went through to the motor, hence controlling its speed.

PWM(pulse width modulation), I'm pretty sure picaxe can do it, search the manuals, and/or google.

There is indeed something called pwm in the manual, i will take a look.

Thanks.

You need to use the PWMOUT command, not PWM.

PWMOUT might be the function used in picaxe for PWM...
