[Digital I/O]


Configures the specified pin to behave either as an input or an output. See the description of digital pins for details on the functionality of the pins.It is possible to enable the internal pullup resistors with the mode INPUT_PULLUP. Additionally, the INPUT mode explicitly disables the internal pullups.


pinMode(pin, mode)


pin: the number of the pin whose mode you wish to set
modeINPUTOUTPUT, or INPUT_PULLUP. (see the digital pins page for a more complete description of the functionality.)



Example Code

int ledPin = 13;                // LED connected to digital pin 13
void setup()
  pinMode(ledPin, OUTPUT);      // sets the digital pin as output
void loop()
  digitalWrite(ledPin, HIGH);   // sets the LED on
  delay(1000);                  // waits for a second
  digitalWrite(ledPin, LOW);    // sets the LED off
  delay(1000);                  // waits for a second


Unlike Arduino, the analog input pins (referred to as A0, A1, etc) of 86Duino cannot be used as digital pins.
