RS232 dec to hex conversion
Posted on 2006-07-14
I am wrtting a program that sends data to a spray jet printer via a RS232 port. I have been sending commands with 1 byte hex data and it works fine ie. 1B 02 14 1B 03 (decimal 27 2 20 27 3)
Now I need to send command data with 2 bytes in hex ie. 143 (decimal 323). How do I send this type of hex value? The command allows 2 bytes for this data, I tried 01 43 but this is interpreted incorrectly? Any help would be greatly appreciated.
