I put some defines just like mplab does and mine don't show as usable.
Code:
#include <xc.h>

#define ledA() PORTCbits.RC0  do { PORTCbits.RC0 = ~PORTCbits.RC0; } while(0)
#define ledB() PORTCbits.RC1  do { PORTCbits.RC1 = ~PORTCbits.RC1; } while(0)
#define ledC() PORTCbits.RC2  do { PORTCbits.RC2 = ~PORTCbits.RC2; } while(0)
#define ledD() PORTCbits.RC3  do { PORTCbits.RC3 = ~PORTCbits.RC3; } while(0)
#define ledE() PORTCbits.RC4  do { PORTCbits.RC4 = ~PORTCbits.RC4; } while(0)
#define ledF() PORTCbits.RC5  do { PORTCbits.RC5 = ~PORTCbits.RC5; } while(0)
#define ledG() PORTBbits.RB4  do { PORTBbits.RB4 = ~PORTBbits.RB4; } while(0)
void main(void) {
  OSCCAL= 0b01111110;
  OPTION =  0b11011111;
  unsigned int a;
  TRISC = 0x00;
  TRISB = 0x00; 
  ledA():
   __delay_ms(20);      
}
first one I use shows a error ledA can't find it
main.c:35: error: (192) undefined identifier "ledA"

Brackets tell the compiler it's a function and why do you have the do while construct.

Why do you have the do while construct. It lets you toggle the pin with just the ledA being called

I got the ideal from here

I guess I need something like this
#define ledA PORTCbits.RC0
Then a
#define ledA_Toggle() do {PORTCbits.RC0 = ~ PORTCbits.RC0} while(0)

It's funny It don't work but it dose if i use a chip I can use MMC with to make the file
how do I get this to show up.
#define ledA() do {PORTCbits.RC0 = ~ PORTCbits.RC0} while(0)

That should work like it is
if i use ledA in code But it shows up not being able to find ledA
Ok I got it LOL can't have this before the do loop
PORTCbits.RC0 do { } while 0 not no good.
This makes it happen
#define ledA PORTCbits.RC0
#define ledA_Toggle() do { PORTCbits.RC0 = ~ PORTCbits.RC0; } while(0)
