Need 6 pins one after another, but can't imagine where I can get them. Any ideas?

    This is not how it works. The 3V3 pins are not General Purpose, they are hard wired to the 3V3 rail. There are other ways to increase the number of available GPIO "pins", i.e. using shift registers or port expanders... but we need some more detailled requirements - especially the bandwidth. That is the rate of data transfer - say this number of GPIO pins (think bits) toggled at this frequency. You can trade one for the other. – Ghanima Jul 30 '18 at 22:05
  • This is a good one on I2C port expanders raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q/4749/19949 or raspberrypi.stackexchange.com/q/10297/19949 – Ghanima Jul 30 '18 at 22:07

    I assume you've looked at the GPIO documentation published by The Organization, and know there aren't 6 adjacent GPIO pins. I'm pretty thick, so I can't imagine why that's a requirement, but if you care to explain what you're trying to accomplish, we might be able to offer something beyond the obvious. – Seamus Jul 31 '18 at 1:33
