...to convert byte mask back into number. I suggest that somebody else probably has successfully researched this before. This is what I've discovered... It takes 12 clocks/words; W before -> W after ; abcdefgh -> 00000ABC ; 10000000 -> 7 = 4+2+1 ; 01000000 -> 6 = 4+2+0 ; 00100000 -> 5 = 4+0+1 ; 00010000 -> 4 = 4+0+0 ; 00001000 -> 3 = 0+2+1 ; 00000100 -> 2 = 0+2+0 ; 00000010 -> 1 = 0+0+1 ; 00000001 -> 0 = 0+0+0 movwf temp ;save abcdefgh swapf temp,W ;efghabcd xorwf temp,F ;........ andlw 0xF ;0000abcd skpz movlw 4 ;load A=0/4 btfss temp,3 btfsc temp,2 iorlw 2 ;add B=0/2 btfss temp,3 btfsc temp,1 iorlw 1 ;add C=0/1 ;W holds 7..0 of result
