Conversion of 2 hex numbers into 2 strings and then into a single float?
Hi all,
I need some simple advice...:embarasse I have a hexadecimal number that is created by two variables, num and dec. where num represent values 0360 while dec are the decimal values 099. The most significant bits are not used in each numbers so I cut these off. For example, if num is f010 and dec = fe02 it means that the total number is 10.02. To print this out I do the following: sprintf (buff1, "%x", *num); sprintf (buff2, "%x", *dec); printf("whole number: %s.%s ", buff1+(strlen(buff1)3), buff2+(strlen(buff2)2)); >> whole number: 010.02 Now my problem is to take this number 10.02 and add it to another number. What is the easiest way to convert this into a float? I’ve been trying different things but none of them have worked out well. I would be grateful for any input. Polly

float f=(num & 0xff) + float(dec & 0xff)/100.0;
