Retrieves the least significant byte of a variable.
Sets the least significant byte of a variable
var = LOW( s )
LOW( s ) = value
The variable that is assigned with the LSB of var S.
The source variable to get the LSB from when used as a function
The target variable to set the LSB of when used in an assignment.
The value to assign to the LSB when used as a statement
You can also assign a byte to retrieve the LSB of a Word or Long.
For example :
B = L , where B is a byte and L is a Long.
In version 2083 the LOW function can also be used to set the LSB of a variable. This for compatibility with BASCOM-8051.
$regfile = "m48def.dat" ' specify the used micro
$crystal = 4000000 ' 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
Dim I As Integer , Z As Byte
I = &H1001
Z = Low(i) ' is 1
