What started the thing off was the pin map or other docs on the web site do not address the RED_LED or GREEN_ LED real pins. Also the pin mode command requires a pin number or so I thought. I thought it was the pin number of the micro. To me after searching for a long time and finding pins_energia.h, it made perfect sense. There were no simple examples of blink showing that GREEN_ LED could be replaced with PN_1 or 81. I think you guys do a great job and Energia so far is a great quick way to get up and running. The site pages are busy but I'm running now -all is well.
Thanks for the support!
