    ' Building a home style winding machine????
    ' here is a simple counter using a pic 16f676 chip with a reset button
    Device = 16F676 'ITs one cheap 14pin chip
    Declare Xtal = 4 'crystal speed

    Declare LCD_DTPin = PORTC.0 'set your display data line from portc.0 to portc.3
    Declare LCD_RSPin = PORTC.4 'set rs pin to portc.4

    Print At 1,1," WIND COUNTER " ' /start up screen

    DelayMS 4000 'display it for 4 seconds

    Cls 'then clear the lcd for the start

    PORTA.0 = 0 Then 'if the button is pressed then

    Print At 1,1,
    "Turns : ",Dec6 dev 'update dsplay and show its not relooping from prolong button press
    If PORTA.0 = 1 Then 'when you let go of the button its ready to add another count
    DelayMS 5
    GoTo loop
    End If
    'create a loop
