dim integer1 as integer'Handles 2 bytes
viewing with a hexeditor
04 FF

and the one I guess that reversehex is mainly used for

the long

dim long1 as long'4 bytes usually for a pointer
in a hex editor
56 34 12 08
Get it now?

Readhex is simply reduced to
dim byte1 as byte
open filepath for binary as #1
get #1, offset+1,byte1
seek #1, offset+1
get #1, ,byte1
close #1
for integers

just change the byte to integer

for long just change integer or byte to long

to write data to a rom use put instead of get

and to extract the address from a long
just take the 8 off so

make sure if you're pointing a pointer into a rom make sure to add the &H8000000


And not bloated.
Simple for you and I, but not for people who don't understand Visual Basic, or who are only just learning, this is for those people. Thanks for the lesson though, I had no idea each Variant was meant to hold a different amount of data...
