I'm starting to tinker with assembly and I have a board with an 8051 micro-controller. I would like to turn an LED at a rate of half a sec.
My approach is to make a counter and when that counter reaches a value turn the LED on. I would then have the counter to reset to zero and start counting to turn the LED off. The thing is the more I look at the problem the less I have a notion to write a counter in assembly. I am wondering if anyone can suggest something on how to approach it? Thanks for those who took the time to read it and very grateful to those who reply.
