I'm using MC9S12DP256, and in the Freescale manual it says when using PACA (16-bit pulse accumulator) "Full count register access should take place in one clock cycle. A
separate read/write for high byte and low byte will give a different result
than accessing them as a word."

My question is what's the command in C to read the word in one clock cycle?
