BETTER BINDEC CONVERSION (Peter Hemsley  Sept '00)
I got the idea from the way some processors execute a decimal adjust instruction in hardware, so did a bit of simple arithmetic and some lateral thinking. This version is my generic one, no real need for the subroutines unless they are called from elsewhere. In the 16bit version I expanded the two inner loops, the resulting code is hardly any bigger, executes faster, uses only one loop counter and does not use the FSR. Great for the smaller PICs. An R Pere replies: hello i am trying to copy and paste and you source code doesnt work for me 24 bits to bcd 8 digits i am very interrenting my email is antoniorubiojose@gmail.com thanks for help me+

DECIMAL CHALLENGE (Steve Teal  Nov '00)
The commands "movlw 10, addwf INDF, W"’ are for the PICs that lack any subtract instructions, the 16c5x for example, "movlw 10, subwf INDF, W’’ works just the same. +

BCD CHALLENGE ACCEPTED (Harry West  Dec '00)
The following is a version using one pass, for Unpacked BCD. I have used the locations BIN0 to BIN2 to hold the three bytes of binary, with the most significant (m.s.) byte in BIN2. The PR goes in the eight bytes DIGIT0 to DIGIT7, with the m.s. digit in DIGIT7. BINCNT and DECCNT hold counts for the two nested loops. +
BINDEC: CALL CLRDIG ; Clear decimal digits MOVLW 24 ; Decimal count MOVWF BINCNT BITLP: RLF BIN0,F ; Shift binary left RLF BIN1,F RLF BIN2,F MOVLW DIGIT0 MOVWF FSR MOVLW 8 ; Count for the decimal digits MOVWF DECCNT MOVLW 6 ; The Working Register holds 6 throughout. For each bit the inner loop is repeated 8 times, with shift in of the next bit, "times 2" and DecAdj of each digit ADJLP: RLF INDF,F ; 2*digit, then shift in "next bit’’ for DIGIT0 or else the carry from the previous digit ADDWF INDF,F ; Add 6, clears Cf and gives 1 in bit 4 if the BTFSS INDF,4 ; addition is needed; zero if not, when SUBWF INDF,F ; we subtract it again. Sets Cf BSF STATUS,C ; Cf could be 0 or 1, so make it 1 as default BTFSS INDF,4 ; Bit 4 is the carry to the next digit BCF STATUS,C ; Reset Cf to zero if bit 4 is clear BCF INDF,4 ; For BCD clear bit 4 in case it’s one INCF FSR,F ; Go to next digit, (Cf not affected) DECFSZ DECCNT,F ; End of inner loop. check digit count and GOTO ADJLP ; round again if it’s not zero DECFSZ BINCNT,F ; End of outer loop, one pass through digits, GOTO BITLP ; check bit count and repeat if necessary. RETURN ;..........+
SHORTER BCD CONVERSION (Michael McLoughlin  April '01)
I have modified Steve Teal’s code, which required 1957 cycles, so that it completes in 1242 cycles!
In the following listing the commands to delete are shown "remmed out" with a semicolon, and the new lines are notated as such. +

Questions:
I modify the code of Peter Hemsley 15July01 for pic18f452. replace 'skpnc' with 'btfsc STATUS ,C'; fsr with fsr0L; indf with indf0; and other miodifications. It works only for 'digital1'( digital1 is correct). I don't know what is the problem. Could anybody can help me out?Dominic Dumont of BVL Controls Ltd replies: I tried it to, doesnt work for me either. Tried 3 Versions, none of them works...+
