Hey guys, I've been playing around tonight and I've run into a problem with Bit 4 of the A register. It is set as output and I am turning it on high, but it is not turning it on. I can't imagine TOCKI being set, which is what is shared with that pin. I've never had this problem before!

Here is my code...Thanks ahead of time :)

RA4 is an open drain output. That means it can be used to sink current, but not to source current.

Another thing to remember is that when configured as an input, RA4 is a Schmitt Trigger input.
