I got this code and was told this is how i need to convert it to readable data. I'm trying to find a way to convert the following to be used in vb6 and this is a sample string to decode 9318BC38..


1) Convert the number to IEEE.
2) Shift the highest 9 bit to the left 1 place, wrapping around.
 
Here's the C code:
 
int[] IEEEArray = BitConverter.GetBytes(myNumber));
 
//Shift most signifigant 9 bits to the left wrapping around.
//These are the high bytes because its little endian.
byte old3 = IEEEArray [3];
IEEEArray [3] = (byte)((IEEEArray [3] << 1) | (IEEEArray [2] >> 7));
IEEEArray [2] = (byte)(IEEEArray [2] | (old3 & 0x80));
 
return (IEEEArray);

Function i3e2d(hstr)   ' And, of course, convert a 32-bit IEEE-formatted hex string to a decimal numbe
