    does uint4 exist?

    Hi all,
    I have this problem: I don't know how I can read a fixed number of bit and convert them into an int.
    To be more clear:
    I am using uint8 to read 8 bits field, does it exist something equivalent for 4 bit or 12?
    How can I do?

    Thanks a lot to everybody who has some ideas!

    Rosella

    Take a look at http://www.codeguru.com/data-misc/NumberBase.html.

    He has 2 functions one to convert strings to numbers and the other to convert numbers to strings. Both accept a base argument ranging from 2 to 32.
