Topic: Reg. #'s to hex #'s??? (Read 617 times) previous topic - next topic


I recently bought an LCD screen from Sparkfun, as well as a joystick kit. I want to interface the two to make a simple game system. The problem is, the LCD uses hex code and the joystick uses ordinary numbers. Does anyone have a bit of code (in the Arduino language) that would convert the regular numbers into hex numbers?


Numbers are numbers, until you need to convert them to some external format.  And I doubt whether either the LCD or the joystick you have actually uses one of those external formats that would require conversion...

It's surprising how often is this misunderstood.  I ran across some code recently (at a software megacorp that prides itself on hiring from the top 10%) that did:
Code: [Select]
sprintf(buf, "%d", var);
var2 = atoi(buf);
because "[var] is not actually a decimal number; it's part of an octet string."  Grr.
