how to translate typedef with bits
« on: June 21, 2024, 02:26:31 pm »
how to translate this?

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. typedef struct {
  2.         unsigned        addr: 24;
  3.         unsigned        len:   8;
  4.         u_char          r0, g0, b0, code;
  5. } P_TAG;
  6.

Just use GPT

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. type
  2.   P_TAG = bitpacked record
  3.     addr: 0..16777215; // 24-bit address (24 bits can represent numbers from 0 to 16777215)
  4.     len: 0..255;       // 8-bit length (8 bits can represent numbers from 0 to 255)
  5.     r0, g0, b0, code: Byte;
  6.   end;

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. type
  2.   P_TAG = bitpacked record
  3.     addr: array[0..2] of byte;
  4.     len: byte;
  5.     r0, g0, b0, code: Byte;
  6.   end;
makes more sense to me than GPT.

btw, the P_ indicates a pointer type, in that case:
Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. type
  2.   P_TAG = ^T_TAG;
  3.   T_TAG = bitpacked record
  4.     addr: array[0..2] of byte;
  5.     len: byte;
  6.     r0, g0, b0, code: Byte;
  7.   end;
This also explains the len field.
It doesn't need to be bitpacked, just packed.

Of course the national anthem of the U.S.A. was written by Jimi Hendrix, didn't you know that?

Depends on the use case, you cant do this in your version:

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. tag.addr := 1234;

That would be a simple cast. I think my approach is closer to what is actually meant.
Proper code would probably be a variant record, but that is not how the C code translates.
I am aware of that.

Code: Pascal  [Select][+][-]
  1. type
  2.   P_TAG = bitpacked record
  3.     addr: 0..(1 shl 24)-1;
  4.     len: Byte;      
  5.     r0, g0, b0, code: Byte;
  6.   end;

Same complaint.
