Ehm I sure hope so, otherwise I think you'd have a crippled processor.
Take the following simple code for instance:
int i = GetInputFromPortOrWhatever();
int j = GetInputFromPortOrWhatever();
PORTC = i * j;

I did something very similar to this in my Connect4 project. Reading
your paragraph above I can only assume that the LED is on for the same
amount of time that it's off.
(Disclaimer: Rushed, unchecked code likely to contain a bug or two)
void FlashLED(unsigned const amount_flashes, long unsigned const
long unsigned const delay = duration / amount_flashes / 2;
RA0 = 1;
RA0 = 0;
} while (--amount_times);
