I'm trying to send a coordinate msg to a telescope. The format should look something like this
with sprintf i can insert the symbols, but then coordinates such as "026" or "07" get truncated to 26 or 7.
I need the zero's in front for the ascii command to work. If i used the coordinate as a string it still truncates the zero's, unless there's a non-numeric value in the string. (weird???)
So my work around was to simple add a non-numeric value with append which in theory should work, but doesn't....
It's quite the catch 22. Can anyone offer advise? This is making my headspin. thanks!! -jon
