lo there all,
i am reading a binary file with open('myfile', 'rb')
then i do a read(1) to read one byte. cool so far.
but how do i read the individual bits of a byte
i mean if i have a = read(1)
how do i know what the msb of a is ?
i need to know because i have to see if the msb is set and i also need to
know the value of the next bit.
any tips would be greatly appreciated.
