Hi,

I have 3 bytes, a,b and c.

a= byte 1: contains high 8 bits of a
b= byte 2: contains high 8 bits of b
c= byte 3: contains 4 bits low(for byte 1) and 4bits low (for byte 2)

i want to take the first 4 bits of c and insert them in the low of a .So result should be

a= {lo 4 bits  of c}{high 8 bits of a} = 12 bits;

thanks

Sunny, I confess that I don't know which language this is, but doesn't 0x usually precede a hexadecimal value?

So you meant 15 decimal or 0x0F

?

Just checking ;-)
