Action

Retrieves the most significant word of a long variable.

 

 

Syntax

var = HIGHW( s )

 

 

Remarks

Var

The variable that is assigned with the MS word of var S.

S

The source variable to get the MSB from.

 

There is no LowW() function. This because when you assign a Long to a word or integer, only the lower part is assigned. For this reason you do not need a Loww() function. W=L will do the same.
