Thread: Accessing a var as a byte or bits in C
face BY : mikespamBeGone@KILLspamwhitewing.co.uk

In Hitech C, is it possible to access the same variable as two
different types in C, specifically bits and bytes ?
For example I want some bit variables for various option flags, but
want to access them all as a single byte when saving/loading them to

Can unions be used to do this ?
