Task #1 - Blink an LED

// Setup
var b = require('bonescript');  // Read library
var LED = "P9_14";              // Where the LED is connected
var state = 0;                  // Define the 'state' variable
b.pinMode(LED, b.OUTPUT);       // Enable the pin

// Call 'blink' every 100ms
setInterval(blink, 100);

// Define the 'blink' function
function blink() {
    state = !state;
    b.analogWrite(LED, state);
