Quite do-able in my QuickHack code, just set the PWM{i}Cycles numbers
all to the same in my routine <G>  Probably a better way to do it in
Assembly, here, and you save 3 Int's worth of storage - I did say it
wasn't optimized <G>.  I'll also add that it's sometimes good to use a
comparison on PWM'ing, to a variable (like my PWM1On) instead of to a
constant (for example: if you're trying to PWM 3.3VDC from 5VDC off a
PIC pin, you want to do feedback, watching the actual voltage, not the
theoretical voltage!)  (Make sure your algorithm does what you need it
to do, not just what "theoretically is right", for you beginners <G>)

10 second C lesson, here:  (Not that this was really C, more quick &
dirty C-Like Pseudocode <G>)

Bool PWM1State = False;  means PWM1State is a variable, initialized to
0, with 2 states (1 for true, 0 for false.)  Though in C, nonzero
usually is used to mean True.

Int PWM1On = 10;  means Integer variable (could be 8-bit or 16-bit, in
assembler I'd use 8-bit probably) initialized to 10.

While (True) do { } means do the same things repeatedly forever (could
be Label:  [Stuff in { }] followed by Goto Label, in assembler.

PWM1State = (PWM1Counter < PWM1On)  means that if PWM1Counter < PWM1On,
set PWM1State to True, else False (use ClrW then IORLW like Scott
Dattalo did, same thing.)

SetPWMPins (PWM1State, PWM2State, PWM3State, PWM4State) is a function
call - I imply MovWF PWM_Port there.

PWM1Counter++ means increment PWM1Counter.

If (PWM1Counter >= PWM1Cycles) PWM1Counter = 0 is sort of obvious <G>
