a simple query
Posted by technocrat2004 (technocrat2004), 27 March 2006Hi friends,
Can any one explain for the following output
% set a [format "%u" -200]
My intesion is to convert the input to unsigned integer
Posted by admin (Graham Ellis), 27 March 2006Yes, take the bit pattern of a signed integer of -200 (1's compliment) it is 11111111111111111111111100111000
As an unsigned interger, that works out as 4294967096, which is 200 short of 2 to the power 32.
If you want to strip off the - sign, then use the abs function:
