Something else I would like to know is about how can I separate a 16 bin value of a variable into
2 8bin variables. For example x = 0B1111111100000001, I would like y to be 0B11111111 and
z = 0B00000001 in order to send them with shiftout (using 2 shift registers) to another chip.
So, you WERE able to find the reference page. Too bad you didn't spend just a little bit longer there. That's a page well worth spending more then 2 minutes at. You should at least familiarize your self with the available functions, even if you don't study things like highByte
. Just knowing that they are there is useful.
You are right. I had to search more the reference page. It is in my plans. Thank you very much for your response. You helped me a lot and I understood many things!
