code for parallel bit bang

I’ve just uploaded a video showing an update to driving ws2801 strings. This code is for driving┬áthem in parallel serial data strings, rather than sequential serial.

#define numleds 32
#define ledsperline 8
#define updatespeed 0
//this code is written for 4 lines of serial data!
int RED[numleds];
int GREEN[numleds];
int BLUE[numleds];
//
//line pin def's
int clockpin1 = 2;
int dataPin1 = 3;
int clockpin2 = 4;
int dataPin2 = 5;
int clockpin3 = 6;
int dataPin3 = 7;
int clockpin4 = 8;
int dataPin4 = 9;
//
//setup stuff
void setup()
{
//pinMode(13, OUTPUT);
pinMode(clockpin1, OUTPUT);
pinMode(dataPin1, OUTPUT);
pinMode(clockpin2, OUTPUT);
pinMode(dataPin2, OUTPUT);
pinMode(clockpin3, OUTPUT);
pinMode(dataPin3, OUTPUT);
pinMode(clockpin4, OUTPUT);
pinMode(dataPin4, OUTPUT);
for (int i = 0; i < numleds; i = i++)
{RED[i]=0;GREEN[i]=0;BLUE[i]=0;}
}
//
void loop() {
for(int l=0;l<32;l++){

updatestring();
delay(updatespeed);
}
for(int l=0;l<32;l++){

updatestring();
delay(updatespeed);
}
for(int l=0;l<32;l++){
BLUE[l]=l*8+1;GREEN[l]=0;
updatestring();
delay(updatespeed);
}
}
//
