Function |to_u16

conv/i8::|to_u16


Usage

|to_u16(value, truncate, or_default)

Parameters

↳ value: i8
↳ truncate: bool
↳ or_default: u16

Return

u16


Turns i8 into u16.

As this conversion might be lossy (every possible i8 value cannot fit into u16), truncate allows value to be truncated to fit into a u16, and or_default set the value that is assigned when a i8 is out of range for u16 and truncation not allowed.

Truncation happens on the binary level, thus: 10010110 (150 if unsigned, -106 if signed) → 0110 (6).
