  • The negative numbers are probably in a format called Two’s complement, which is a convention for storing negative numbers as binary. In two’s complement, if the most significant bit is set, the number is negative. To get the magnitude of the negative number, you invert it and add one. e.g.:

    if(value & 0x8000) {
        negative = true;
        value = (~value) + 1;
    }
    

No public wish lists :(
