PIC Microcontroller TRIS Instruction

You set the TRIS bits for 0's for the port pins you want to write to; i.e. setting TrisB to '11110000'B would leave RB7..RB4 as inputs but make RB3..RB0 outputs. The TRIS bits are 'usually' write-only; you usually know how you last left them set.

Microchip does not intend to support the TRIS instruction in future products.

In place of a TRIS command, use a MOVWF TRIS(A,B,etc) assuming that W is loaded with the desired mask. You also need to switch to bank 1 before doing the movwf command, where the tris addresses then match the port addresses. That's why people still like to use the tris command - no bank switch is required. If the tris command exists for a chip, it will always exist for that chip - Microchip cautions against using it in the case of using the same software on a future product that will not have the tris command. In the my16F87x data sheet, they emphatically say DONOT USE the tris instruction. In fact, on the '877, the TRIS command works only on ports a, b, c not d, e
