|Home BasePack DStruct Class TFifo Methods SenseByte|
|See also: GetByte, CountBytes|
It is sometimes useful to read any byte in the FIFO without deleting the information (as it is done by GetByte). The method SenseByte reads a byte at the specified position ix and returns it in the parameter OutByte. The value of OutByte is only valid if the function returned a TRUE value.
The index ix is relative to the output of the FIFO. An index of ix =0 points to the oldest byte in the FIFO. The parameter ix may receive values between 0 and CountBytes -1.
