Recently I have been learning to prototype circuits on a couple devices, as I am inspired to one day design and develop embedded systems.
The two devices that I have been prototyping with are the AVR family of micro-controllers ,and of course, the raspberry-Pi3.
I program in C with AVR's and Python on the Pi. Python has been a lot easier to learn, and for me, more intuitive, while with C I have had many struggles so far.
As C coding relates to pin/register manipulation though, I have of the AVR's "PIN" statement, which can read the stored value of a GPIO pin on the AVR.
Is there a an equivalent statement within a python library module which offers the same functionality.
