Hi, Iam new to the forum and wanted to say hi.

Iam majoring computer engineering, yet iam having a total black out in MPLAB.

Classes just started and I took C before but it was five years ago.
Here is my problem:

2. Program Two: Name this program SF2.asm. Modify so that you initially write the 0X55 to the PORTB LEDs and then you write the compliment of 0X55 to PORTB after the pause. You will not be loading W with 0XAA!

So here is how sf2.asm looks:

list p=16F877A
__config h'3f32'
radix hex
;Register Equates go here
ncount EQU 0x20
mcount EQU 0x21
lcount EQU 0x22
org 0x000
goto start
org 0x005
start bsf STATUS,RP0 ;Switch to Bank 1
movlw 0x00 ;load w with all zeros
movwf TRISB ;Set PORTB direction bits to outputs
bcf STATUS,RP0 ;Switch back to Bank 0
loop movlw 0xAA ;load w with 0xAA
movwf PORTB ;write contents of w to portb
call pause ;DELAY for visablity
movlw 0x55 ;load w with 0x55
movwf PORTB ;write contents of w to portb
call pause ;DELAY for visablity
goto loop ;loop to write again
;Pause is a 3 loop counter. Adjust time delay by altering
;lcount. Lcount should be between 0x20 and0x40 for for visable change.
;--------------OUTER LOOP---------------------------------------->|
pause movlw 0x04 ;CHANGE THIS VAL FOR TIME DELAY |
movwf lcount ;load l wilh 4 Decimal |
;--------------MIDDLE LOOP--------------------------------->| |
loadm movlw 0xff ;load mcount will ff | |
movwf mcount ; | |
;-----------INNER MOST LOOP----------------------------->| | | |
loadn movlw 0xff ;n | | |
movwf ncount ;load ncount with ff | | |
decn decfsz ncount,f ;decrement N | | |
goto decn ;again thru inner loop N | | |
;-------------------------------------------------------<| | |
decfsz mcount,f ;decrement M | |
goto loadn ;again thru middle loop M | |
;---------------------------------------------------------<<| |
decfsz lcount,f ;decrement L |
goto loadm ;again thru outer loop L |
return ;done

Iam really lost can anyone provide help
