Decimal Number to Binary Conversion Program

Please read Operation on Bits and Bitwise Operators and Right/Left Bit Shift Operators if you haven’t already. This post is based on those articles.

We’ll be using the following operators and the respective properties for decimal to binary conversion:

1. AND (&) Operator from the article Operation on Bits and Bitwise Operators: Its property to be able to check whether a particular bit is ON (1) or OFF (0).

2. Left Bit Shift Operator (<<) from the article Right/Left Bit Shift Operators: Its property to shift bits (of byte(s)) to desired number of places to the left.

After making you guys familiar with the two things above, the program will be easier to understand.

``````
// Example Program to convert decimal number
// to binary equivalent.
// --------
// Function: We have defined a function 'showbits()'
//       It shows the bit structure of the
//       Short Int(2 Bytes) passed as argument
#include<stdio.h>

// prototype
void showbits(short int);

//defined
void showbits(short int dec_num)
{

for(loop=15; loop>=0; loop--)
{

if(bit==0) printf("0");
else printf("1");
}
printf("\n");
}

//main code to show how showbits()
// is working
void main()
{
short int dec;

printf("Enter a decimal number:");
scanf("%d",&dec);

showbits(dec);
}

``````

I’m leaving its working part as an exercise for you guys.

Ha-ha! Not happy?

Ok, I’ll give you a hint, in the line…

Binary of 1 is 0000000000000001 (in two byte format) which is shifted 15 bits to the left, in the first iteration.

Fix For Toshiba Satellite "RTC Battery is Low" Error (with Pictures)

RTC Battery is Low Error on a Toshiba Satellite laptop "RTC Battery is Low..." An error message flashing while you try to boot your laptop is enough to panic many people. But worry not! "RTC Battery" stands for Real-Time Clock battery which almost all laptops and PCs have on their motherboard to power the clock and sometimes to also keep the CMOS settings from getting erased while the system is switched off.  It is not uncommon for these batteries to last for years before requiring a replacement as the clock consumes very less power. And contrary to what some people tell you - they are not rechargeable or getting charged while your computer or laptop is running. In this article, we'll learn everything about RTC batteries and how to fix the error on your Toshiba Satellite laptop. What is an RTC Battery? RTC or CMOS batteries are small coin-shaped lithium batteries with a 3-volts output. Most laptops use

The Best Way(s) to Comment out PHP/HTML Code

PHP supports various styles of comments. Please check the following example: <?php // Single line comment code (); # Single line Comment code2 (); /* Multi Line comment code(); The code inside doesn't run */ // /* This doesn NOT start a multi-line comment block /* Multi line comment block The following line still ends the multi-line comment block //*/ The " # " comment style, though, is rarely used. Do note, in the example, that anything (even a multi-block comment /* ) after a " // " or " # " is a comment, and /* */ around any single-line comment overrides it. This information will come in handy when we learn about some neat tricks next. Comment out PHP Code Blocks Check the following code <?php //* Toggle line if ( 1 ) {      // } else {      // } //*/ //* Toggle line if ( 2 ) {      // } else {      // } //*/ Now see how easy it is to toggle a part of PHP code by just removing or adding a single " / " from th

Generating XHTML MP (WAP 2.0) Pages From PHP

Maybe you guys know that I've been working on a service called MyWapBlog.com which lets peoples create/manage mobile blogs using their mobile phones. In the course of the development I've learnt great deal about mobile websites and their dynamic generation, and I'm sharing a bit of it here in this post. How do you generate dynamic (X)HTML Pages using PHP? Simple: <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//W3C//DTD XHTML 1.0 Transitional//EN" "http://www.w3.org/TR/xhtml1/DTD/xhtml1-transitional.dtd"> <html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml"  dir="ltr"> <head> <title>Sometitle</title> </head> <body> <h1>Hello</h1> <p> <?php  echo  date ( 'h:i A, j-M-y' );  ?> </p> </body> </html> And if you look at XHTML MP pages, their source look like the following: <?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?> <!DOCTYPE html PUBLIC "-//WAPFORUM
