Concatenate example help needed


Recommended Posts

________________________________________________________________ 

 

I am using a launchpad with an msp430g2553 running Energia 17. 

I am trying to concatenate 4 integers into a single  number

 

int a = 48;

int b = 49;

int c = 50;

int d = 51;

 

I am trying to get this  result : int e = 48495051,

 

the result I get when running the following code is 18231,

Please tell me where I have gone wrong. Can anyone provide a working example of

Code which accomplishes the result I am trying to achieve.

Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

 

 

void setup()

{

 Serial.begin(9600); 

}

void loop()

{

 int a = 48;

 int b = 49;

 int c = 50;

 int d = 51;

 unsigned long int e = a | (b << 8) | (c << 16) | (d << 24);

 Serial.println(e);

 delay(1000);

}

 

 

?

Thank you for your help, I put together this sketch and it works okay now.

 

void setup()

{

 Serial.begin(9600);

}

void loop()

{

  long a = 48;

  long b = 49;

  long c = 50;

  long d = 51;

  long e;

  e=(a*1000000)+(b*10000)+(c*100)+d;

  Serial.println(e);

  delay(1000);

 

}

?

Shifting by 8 will "multiply" your numbers by 256, while your intention was (probably) to multiply by 100.

 int a = 0x48;
 int b = 0x49;
 int c = 0x50;
 int d = 0x51;
 unsigned long int e = a | (b << 8) | (c << 16) | (d << 24);
 // e == 0x51504948

since 0x100 is 256 this works for hexadecimal numbers, but for decimal numbers, you'll have to do multiplication.
