SPI on the Pro MINI from Sparkfun

In the hardware section I looked up the pro mini, which is listed there and it says:

SPI: 10 (SS), 11 (MOSI), 12 (MISO), 13 (SCK). These pins support SPI communication, which, although provided by the underlying hardware, is not currently included in the Arduino language.

For the UNO, is says: SPI: 10 (SS), 11 (MOSI), 12 (MISO), 13 (SCK). These pins support SPI communication using the SPI library.

Does this mean I can't use the SPI library with the PRO MINI? I'm wondering about using the DS3234 RTC from Sparkfun with the 5 volt Pro Mini. The DS3234 talks via SPI.

Hi Southern,

That must be some old text, I can't think of why it wouldn't work exactly the same as an Uno as far as SPI is concerned.

THANKS. I've been scouring the net trying to find this.

Yeah that page needs updating, it also says the MCU is an ATmega168. The Pro Minis I bought about a year ago had ATmega328Ps. The part about the SPI pins should read the same as the Uno hardware page, and reference the SPI library.
