let roomTemperature = -88y;
To represent the value of a signed byte variable, use %d.
Instead of a decimal number, you can also initialize an integral variable with a hexadecimal value. When doing this, make sure the decimal equivalent is less than 255. Here is an example:
let number = 0xFE
To convert a number to byte, call the byte function. Here is an example:
let number = -85248; let result = byte number;
A signed byte is a small number that can be negative or positive, rangin between -128 and 127. To declare a variable for that kind of value, you can apply the sbyte type. Here is an example:
let roomTemperature : sbyte = -88y;
An unsigned byte is a small number between 0 and 255. When declaring a variable that would hold such a small natural number and when initialyzing it, add uy to the right of the value. Here is an example:
let age = 14uy
Make sure you don't use a value that is higher than 255 oterwise, you would receive an error.
