I still would like to know what PC, PD, PH, etc. means and when to use them vs. others. Also I would like to know if there is any better way of exporting the pins through C rather than doing something like:
Code:
//near beginning of file
system("echo 71 > /sys/class/gpio/export")
and
Code:
//near end of file
system("echo 71 > /sys/class/gpio/unexport")

You can fopen the file and write the string "71" to it like your first post.  That's essentially what the echo is doing.
