Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

I need help making a function that converts decimal to binary and vice versa.

RE: Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

FUNCTION Bin% (Bit$)
    Temp& = 0
    Length% = LEN(Bit$)
    FOR X% = 1 TO Length%
        IF MID$(Bit$, Length% - X% + 1, 1) = "1" THEN
           Temp& = Temp& + 2 ^ (X% - 1)
        END IF
    NEXT X%
    IF Temp& > 32767 THEN
       Bin% = Temp& - 65536
       Bin% = Temp&
    END IF

    Decimal& = 0
    Power% = 0
    Binary$ = UCASE$(Binary$)
    FOR I% = LEN(Binary$) TO 1 STEP -1
        Digit% = ASC(MID$(Binary$, I%, 1)) - 48
        IF Digit% < 0 OR Digit% > 1 THEN
           Decimal& = 0
           EXIT FOR
        END IF
        Decimal& = Decimal& + Digit% * 2 ^ (Power%)
        Power% = Power% + 1
    NEXT I%
    BinDec& = Decimal&

RE: Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

BinDec converts binary to decimal, but what does Bin do? And do you convert Decimal to Binary?

RE: Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

It converts a binary string to a decimal
Bin%(101101) will come out to 45

RE: Decimal ----> Binary Decimal <-------- Binary

It seems that BinDec converts binary to decimal, and Bin does too? Anyway I was looking through an ASM tutorial and it explained the conversions binry to decimal and decimal to binary so i wrote my own functions because i could only get your BinDec to work. Thanx for your help.
