I want to do some port writes so I can enable multiple pins at a time. (Was easy to do with PICs). According to my research, this is possible and a number of sites give examples.
When I try it, the Arduino IDE doesn't recognize any statement as valid, eg DDRB=0xFF, or PortB=(0xFF).
They are not recognized as key words and are not highlighted.
When I try to compile, of course I get an error.
So is this a problem with the IDE? (latest version 1.8.5).
I want to simultaneously enable pins 8,9,10 on a Leonardo, which is supposedly pins in portB.
