    Counter problems

    dude.notmyname

      I want to use the software controllable counter, but I want it to count based on a clock coming into an IO pin, and not depend at all on the system clock.  the clock to the counter will be going near the same speed as my system clock, so using the clock and count pins would be error prone.  if I use the basic counter, I can use the external signal as a clock and it works fine.  I want that same functionality, but with software control (setting TC and Compare values) and compare output.  how can I achieve this?

      I'm working with the CY8CKIT-059
