Could someone point me to some instructions on what these macros are used for?

Thank you.

They're depricated, so it's best to forget about them.

They used to be used to read and write to the I/O ports. Port access is now done directly.

Writing code is like having sex.... make one little mistake, and you're supporting it for life.
