RGB LED Strip controlled by an Arduino with the help of MOSFETs
// HSV fade/bounce for Arduino - scruss.com - 2010/09/12
// Note that there's some legacy code left in here which seems to do nothing
// but should do no harm ...
// don't futz with these, illicit sums later
#define RED 9// pin for red LED
#define GREEN 10 // pin for green - never explicitly referenced
#define BLUE 11 // pin for blue - never explicitly referenced
#define SIZE 255
#define DELAY 20
#define HUE_MAX 6.0
#define HUE_DELTA 0.01
//long deltas[3] = { 5, 6, 7 };

long rgbval;
// for reasons unknown, if value !=0, the LED doesn't light. Hmm ...
// and saturation seems to be inverted

There's a bug in line 67: v<1.0 should probably read v<0.0.

Thanks for this code, it's very useful. I used the proposed bug fix too, otherwise the LED is always black (off).
