i have code like this

char c = pkt_->data[3];
  switch (c)
  {
    case 0x03:
      ret="R";
      break;
    case 0xf6:
      ret="F";
      break;
     case 0xf7:
      ret="f";
      break;
     default:
     break;
}

while debugging i can see that value of c is 0xf7, but it is not going to execute that case statement and always going to default case. what could be the problem.

I'm concerned about your lines of the form:

ret="R";

what is ret?  If a char, then you are writing improper code.  It should be:

ret = 'R';

That code should work.  
How do you know that it is failing?  
Does it work when c is 0x03?
What is your declaration for the variable 'ret' ?

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

How about
unsigned char c

I thought that was a pretty excellent answer.  Neither jhance nor myself thought of it immediately.  I wonder why nrusinh gave SteH a grade of C.
