I am working on a project where I need to deal at the byte level with integers. Since saving space is a primary consideration, I only need very small (and variable length ints).
Is there a way that I can turn the int '4096' into 3 bytes? or '1053' into a 2 bytes?
Obviously I cna do it manually = (byte * 256) + (byte), but i was wondering if there is an easier option to convert the int into x bytes and back again?
