    Bit testing/setting syntax when we code pmSystems

    Hello, all.

    How do we code to test or set a bit. Say x04FE .7 (which I see is
    read-only, but I'm pretending).

    To set it, it would be something like: x04FE = x04FE + x80 ???

    To check it, it would be something like: if x04FE and x80 then .... ???

    What is the exact syntax for both of these?

    Warm regards,
    David

    Hi,

    I hope I understood you right... things are much simpler than that...

    04FE .7 ThisIsMyBit

    To set it... use

    ThisIsMyBit = 1

    To reset it use

    ThisIsMyBit = 0

    Nothing simpler... if ThisIsMyBit is defined as a bit, you handle it as a
    bit. If it is defined as a byte or word, then you would have to manipulate
    it as you describe below... but it is not necessary.

    Ciao

    Enrico
