Calling Sequence

Join(digits)

Join(digits, sbits)

Parameters

digits

-

a list of base 2^sbits positive digits

sbits

-

positive integer number of bits to join on

Description

• 

The Join command joins the input list of integers, least significant first, into a number base 2^sbits (sbits defaults to 1), using only the first sbits bits of each digit.

• 

The most common usage of this command would be for conversion of a list of bits to a number.

• 

The reverse operation, converting the number to digits, is accomplished using the Split command.
