Function return Boolean
The I2C channel number (0-4).
The data byte to send to the slave.
This function transmits a data value to an I2C slave and reads the acknowledgement bit returned by the
slave. The value returned by this function is the value of the acknowledge bit received from the slave
device a positive acknowledgement results in a True value being returned.
This function can be used in conjunction with I2CStart(), I2CGetByte() and I2CStop() to perform
a lower level interaction with an I2C slave device. Knowledge of the I2C protocol and the specifications of
the particular I2C device are required in order to use this function.
If the specified I2C channel has not been properly prepared using OpenI2C(), the results are undefined.
If an invalid channel number is specified, the function returns immediately without doing anything.
This function uses the for channels 1 to 4. If the timer is already in use, the function will do nothing and
the return value is undefined. Interrupts are disabled for about 9 times the selected I2C bit time plus
additional amounts due to slave clock stretching. However, RTC ticks are accumulated during the
process so the RTC should not lose time.
This function is not available in BasicX compatibility mode.
