hi every one
i have this 10 bit binary number that i want to convert it into BCD
i have no idea how
some say i should use a (E)PROM or i should cascade several 74583s
but i have no idea how to program PROM or cascade 74583 :confused:
and im also open to new ideas about converting

So do you understand what BCD is? I always thought BCD to be goofy and useless, but I guess it still crops up from time to time.

It makes it easy to display binary information in a digital decimal display. Otherwise displaying binary data in decimal format is rather messy.

no there's been a misunderstanding
i have studied it a lot
i aint lazy im just rookie
this was a part of a greater project
an 8bit calculator performing the 4 main actions
i had alternative designs too but this was the simplest
the only problem left is the 10bit binary results

Code:
dig1 = dig10 = dig100 = dig1000 = 0;
while(num >= 1000)
{
	dig1000 ++;
	num -= 1000;
}
while(num >= 100)
{
	dig100 ++;
	num -= 100;
}
while(num >= 10)
{
	dig10 ++;
	num -= 10;
}
dig1 = num;
