function dwordToByteTable(Number) : table

Converts a DWORD (4 bytes) to a byte table, interpreting it as an integer.


Note: If the number is a float only the integer no greater than or no less than the given value will be used.

Same as value from 'math.floor'.

 i.e.: 8.1 : 8, 8.9 : 8, -8.1 : -8, -8.9 : -8


Note: If the number is larger than a DWORD (4 bytes) only the lower portion of the number will be used.

 i.e.: 0xFFFFFFFF00 : 0xFFFFFF00
         4 3 2 1 0      3 2 1 0

Examples[edit]

 local bt = dwordToByteTable(0xFFFFFFFF)
                             --3 2 1 0
 writeBytes('00123ABC', bt)


Code:

 local bt = dwordToByteTable(10)
 for i, v in ipairs(bt) do
   print(i, string.format('%02X', v))
 end

Output:

 0 0A 
 1 00 
 2 00 
 3 00 


Code:

 local bt = dwordToByteTable(10.9)
 for i, v in ipairs(bt) do
   print(i, string.format('%02X', v))
 end

Output:

 0 0A 
 1 00 
 2 00 
 3 00 


Code:

 local bt = dwordToByteTable(0xFFFFFFFF00)
                             --4 3 2 1 0
 for i, v in ipairs(bt) do
   print(i, string.format('%02X', v))
 end

Output:
