Trying to program MM5451 to turn on and off consecutive LEDs.

Hi everyone,

I'm new to Arduino and have been doing some simple projects. I graduated a little bit ago to using the 74hc595 shift register and now i have an idea for a clock i would like to design. But instead of the 74 I would like to use the MM5451 to control more LEDs with the less chips, and no resistors. The problem is I don't understand how the MM5451 works. I can't use the same program for the 74 chip because it appears this works differently. Does anyone have experience with this chip and know how I would go about coding for this?

Thanks in advance,
