Program provides integer to binary Conversion-  03/02/98 EDN Design Ideas:  (File had multiple circuit ideas.  Scroll to find this one.) Binary numbers rarely appear in applications of C or C++ programs, so any reference to converting from an integer to a binary number is usually relegated to a few simple examples in the appendix.  However, when you're working with codes for communication systems, terms such as parity, checksum, distance, weight, and block codes are much easier to verify with a check solution when they are in binary form. __ Circuit Design by Bert Erickson, Fayetteville, NY
