I am happy this helps but note that not all the functions in the manual are valid for all PIC's. It depends on the PIC which functions are valid.

Also be aware that those library functions only apply to the CCS compiler, if you are using any other brand of C compiler then it will have its own (different) set of PIC library functions.

The bottom line is read the manual that comes with your compiler.
