Hi there,

I have an array of unsigned chars that hold hex values, I’m interested in values [5] and [6] of the array.

Say [5] = 0x5b = 0101 1011

and [6] = 0x7b = 0111 1011

I'm trying to get all of [5] and the first half of [6], so 1011011 1111. So far I’ve come up with this;

```
short int holder = 0;
memcpy(holder,&char_array[5], 2 );
short int alt = holder >> 4;
return 0;
```

I've tried creating a 14 bit data type to hold the bits, copying the 2 bytes in then shifting right 4 but this does not work. I appreciate this is probably not the right way to do this so any help would be greatly appreciated.

Cheers

Alex
