Action

Convert a numeric variable into the binary string representation.

 

 

Syntax

Var = Bin(source)

 

 

Remarks

Var

The target string that will be assigned with the binary representation of the variable source.

Source

The numeric variable that will be converted.

 

 

The BIN() function can be used to display the state of a port.

When the variable source has the value &B10100011 the string named var will be assigned with "10100011".

It can be easily printed to the serial port.

Example

$regfile = "m48def.dat"                                   ' specify the used micro

$crystal = 8000000                                         ' used crystal frequency

$baud = 19200                                               ' use baud rate

$hwstack = 32                                               ' default use 32 for the hardware stack

$swstack = 10                                               ' default use 10 for the SW stack

$framesize = 40                                             ' default use 40 for the frame space

 

Config Com1 = Dummy , Synchrone = 0 , Parity = None , Stopbits = 1 , Databits = 8 , Clockpol = 0

 

 

Dim B As Byte

' assign value to B

B = 45

 

Dim S As String * 10

'convert to string

S = Bin(b)

 

'assign value to portb

Portb = 33

Print Bin(portb)

 

'of course it also works for other numerics
