Topic: 8 bit binary code to text (Read 1 time) previous topic - next topic

Text to binary code:

Code: [Select]
void setup() {
  Serial.begin(9600);         // open serial port at 9600 baud

void loop() {
  if(Serial.available()) {    // if anything on port
    byte c = Serial.read();   // read one character
    for(int i=0; i<8; i++) { 
      Serial.print(c%2);      // print the least significant bit
      c /= 2;                 // move to next significant bit


I want to reverse this process. Help.

Binaty code in digital input  to text ?

Code: [Select]


I think what you want to do is define the character instead of reading a character value.  So delete the "byte c"line and in the header add a char definition.

Code: [Select]
char c = 'text';

Code: [Select]
char c = 'text';
This will not work.
In C/C++ "char" is just *one single* value.
You can use a character array, but you have to use double quotes instead of single ones and curly brackets.
Code: [Select]
char c[] = {"text"};
This array has 5 values (not 4) because it has a termination character (null character: 0x00) at the end.
The termination character is added automatically in this case.
For more detailed information see: https://www.arduino.cc/en/Reference/String

And to the initial question: I am sorry, I don't understand what the thread opener wants to do.
Always decouple electronic circuitry.


Yeah I didn't understand exactly what the OP wanted to do too.  You can use char(x) to turn a number into a character.  So if byte() defines a number then that should be able to be used in char() to make a character.  However, I might be totally off.
