Hi,

Can anyone give me the VB.Net equivalent of the following C line of code, or explain the C syntax?

Thank you.

kb[6-i][1+j] |= newbit[j*8+k] << (7-k);

Hi IAJWDDIY,

kb is a 2D array ... newbit is a 1D array ...
This code is same as

a = kb[6-i][1+j]; ...... get element in (6-i)th row and (1+j)th column
b = newbit[j*8+k]; ..... get (j*8+k)th element from newbit array
b = b << (7-k); .... Left shift it 7-k times
a = a | b; .... Bitwise OR a with b
kb[6-i][1+j] = a .... store the result back in 2D array at the same location ... (6-i)th row and (1+j)th column

Cheers!
