Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Cheers,
Kirupa

Thread: convert uint16_t to char

  1. #1

    convert uint16_t to char

    i have a value in uint16_t that i want to convert in char. How can i do it?

  2. #2
    uint16_t a = 0xFFFF;
    char b = (char) (a & 0x00FF);
    If you notice this notice you will notice that this notice is not worth noticing.

    That just throws away the top most byte. It doesn't do a "conversion". Plus it's the same as just doing:
    char b = (char)a;

    If you want to retain the meaning of every possible uint16_t then it's not going to work, because it's not the same size as a char. If you're only interested in the right most byte, then MTsoul's solution will work.
