Problem with reading offset 0x034E


Recommended Posts

Hello, I'm trying to read the offset 0x034E - COM1 frequency, using lua, Here is the code

while 1 do
file = io.open("test.txt", "w")

ppp = ipc.readUW(0x034E)

file:write(ppp, "\n")



The loop writes the value of this offset to the file. The value of this offset is 6194, com1 frequency is set to 118.050 

It reads this value wrong and I don't know where I went wrong. Please help.

I think I found a solution to the problem, I have to use

string.format("%04X", value)

Yes - the offset is in BCD format, so you need to look at the hex representation, as it says in the offset status documentation:

COM1 frequency, 4 digits in BCD format. A frequency of 123.45 is represented by 0x2345. The leading 1 is assumed.
