I am willing to use the following code in one phase of my project. The problem is that i dont understand this assembly language, In school I took it in different form...
Mov ax, bx
out 11, AL bla bla...
here the registers is different and everything is different....
All I need is to know what are the input and output pins...
say port A0-A3 INPUT
bc i really dont know the input and output ports in the code...
the code is to be used on pic16f628 here is the microcontroller datasheet in case u need it
and here is the code:

thnx a lot in advance


I suggest you to download the main PIC 16F84A manual. (or the one related to your PIC) There you will see a list of registers and opcodes. Actually for PIC registers is like memory (there are a lot of theme) and the only register is working register which is W. For example you can't move a value to a register directly you have to load it to working register first : movlw .01010101; movwf TRISA
The TRIS_ registers adjust wether the pins of the related port (TRISA -> PORTA) are to be used for input or output. (not both are possible for all port/pins) There also are two memory (register) banks you have to set

BSF STATUS, RP0 ; bit set status register bit RP0 to select bank 1
clrf TRISA ;make PORTA all pins outputs
BCF STATUS, RP0 ;select back bank 0

PORTA,PORTB,... are on bank 0 and TRISA, TRISB, ... are on bank 1 (check register map on the reference)

clrf PORTA; clear all bits/pins of PORTA

Those are the basics, post if you need any more knowledge.
