Fixed-width integer and calculation for Python

$ pip install uint

Fixed-width integers for Python

uint provides two classes: Uint and Int. They are calculated like int but is fixed-width so they behave like ones that you're familiar with ... like in C language.

In [1]: from uint import Uint, Int

In [2]: u, i = Uint(0xff, 8), Int(0xff, 8)

In [3]: u
Out[3]: <uint8, value=255>

In [4]: i
Out[4]: <int8, value=-1>

In [5]: u << 2 >> 1
Out[5]: <uint8, value=126>

In [6]: i << 2 >> 1
Out[6]: <int8, value=-2>

Of course they overflows when you do like:

In [1]: from uint import Uint, Int

In [2]: u, i = Uint(0xff, 8), Int(0x7f, 8)

In [3]: u, i
Out[3]: (<uint8, value=255>, <int8, value=127>)

In [4]: u+1, i+1
Out[4]: (<uint8, value=0>, <int8, value=-128>)

Register with multiple fields inside

The original purpose of this package is to reduce labor of calculating "register values" in several MCUs and SoCs. See examples directory for detailed usage.

In [1]: from uint import Register

In [2]: reg = Register('reg')

In [3]: reg[15:8] = 'f1'

In [4]: reg[7:0] = 'f2'

In [5]: reg['f1'] = 0x5A

In [6]: reg['f2'] = 0x0F

In [7]: hex(reg.encode())
Out[7]: '0x5a0f'

In [8]: reg.decode(0x1234)

In [9]: reg['f1'].value.wire.hex
Out[9]: "8'h12"

In [10]: reg['f2'].value.wire.hex
Out[10]: "8'h34"
