( #3333=superdoc: print w/replies, xml ) Need Help??

I have just read up on two's complement and one's complement through the link to wikipedia provided by haukex. I had not realised there was a two's complement representation as well as operation, and when I suggested the masking ideas, that the numbers being masked to produce the decimal representation were in two's complement representation. It just seemed to work.

I may have been a little off the mark, when suggesting these were some kind of unused integers, yet I feel it is too early to dismiss the idea as just an outdated one's complement runoff.

I really got a lot out of this thread and the responses from everybody have been very helpful and informative. It is exciting to find out new stuff and expand my knowledge. I try to keep it Perl, but the nature of computers is that it is all related in some manner.

Perl may be DWIM, but WDIM? :)

Use:  <p> text here (a paragraph) </p>
and:  <code> code here </code>
to format your post; it's "PerlMonks-approved HTML":

  • Are you posting in the right place? Check out Where do I post X? to know for sure.
  • Posts may use any of the Perl Monks Approved HTML tags. Currently these include the following:
    <code> <a> <b> <big> <blockquote> <br /> <dd> <dl> <dt> <em> <font> <h1> <h2> <h3> <h4> <h5> <h6> <hr /> <i> <li> <nbsp> <ol> <p> <small> <strike> <strong> <sub> <sup> <table> <td> <th> <tr> <tt> <u> <ul>
  • Snippets of code should be wrapped in <code> tags not <pre> tags. In fact, <pre> tags should generally be avoided. If they must be used, extreme care should be taken to ensure that their contents do not have long lines (<70 chars), in order to prevent horizontal scrolling (and possible janitor intervention).
  • Want more info? How to link or or How to display code and escape characters are good places to start.
