Is it possible to define a delay if i shall use it several times

I mean I can define ports as names for easy programming and give low or high output short names like

Code:
#define LED_OFF output_low
Can I do the same with a delay?

I looking to turn off (or on) several outputs for a short period of time (250ms)
will it make sense to do it like this?

Code:
#define LED_blink output_low delay(250ms) output_high

Hi,

Yes, you create a subroutine for the delay_loop.

You then CALL delay_loop or GOTO delay_loop when ever you need it.

The value currently held in W can be carried into the subroutine if needed.

A Macro can be also used to do similar things.
