BinaryConstants

Page history last edited by Kenneth Finnegan 12 years, 8 months ago

These macros will let you use binary constants straight in your code.  C normally only allows you to use base 8, 10, and 16.  Base 2 is extreamely useful when you're dealing with individual bits in a bitfield.

 

Code:

 binconst.h

 

Usage:

#include "binconst.h"

 

unsigned char bitfield = B8(01010101); // 85

unsigned int bigbitfield = B32(10000000,11111111,10101010,01010101); // 2164238933

 


Extensions:

If you needed, it would be pretty trivial to create a 64 bit binary macro as well.  I'll leave that as an exercise for the reader.
