SUB PULSOUT (pin, duration)
SUB PWM (pin, duty, timeperiod)
FUNCTION RCTIME (pin, state)

Description
 
COUNT the number of pulses low-high-low or high-low-high on pin over a timeperiod of milliseconds, returning the FUNCTION value.
 
PULSIN measures an input pulse on pin at level, returning the value in microseconds. The IO direction of pin will be set to input. If pin is already at level when PULSIN is called it will wait to a transition to the opposite level. PULSIN will wait 1 second for pin to go to level.  The minimum pulse that can be measured is 1 microseconds. If pin does not go to level or remains at level longer than 1 second 0 is returned..
 
PULSOUT will generate an output pulse on pin for duration microseconds. The IO direction of pin will be set to output. The level of the output will be switched, driven for duration microseconds, then switched back to its initial level. The minimum pulse period is 1 microseconds.
 
PWM will generate a pulse corresponding to an analog signal on pin for timeperiod in milliseconds with a duty cycle of 0 to 255. A duty cycle of 255 corresponds to an output value of 100%. The IO direction of the pin will be set to output, the PWM pulse train is output, and then the pin is set to tri-state (input).  If the pin is connected to an RC filter, then the voltage will stay on the capacitor for a period of time determined by the load.
 
RCTIME will measure the time which pin remains at level, returning the value in microseconds(us). The minimum time measured is 1 microseconds. If pin is not at level when RCTIME is called -1 is returned. If pin remains at level longer than 1 second 0 is returned.
