Wrong Result When Explicitly Casting During A Shift

Recommended Posts

I think this is a bug.

 

unsigned short y;

unsigned char x;

 

 

lets say

y=FF45 ;

 

i would like to put the high byte of y into x

 

if I do an implicit casting:

x = y >> 8;

 

the result is correct x = FF

 

If I do an explicit casting:

 

x = (unsigned char) y >> 8;

 

I get x = 00

No error here. Your expression first casts short to char and than shifts this char.

I think 0x00 is a perfectly good result. You are shifting in a '0' from the left 8 times not rotating a char 8 times.
