Yep, I'd seen them before I went to bed last night but needed sleep so couldn't do any flipping:)

Now I just need to figure out what I can do with these commands... I have a few ideas:)

As always, thanks DJ.
These commands will be very useful for any new i2c devices that you'll be adding:)
Do I understand correctly that the GetBits function counts from LSB, not MSB?
In the example provided :
$x = SetBits(1, 0, 0, 0, 1, 0, 0, 1) --> MSB (0) to LSB (7)
GetBit($x, 3)) should return 0 if counting from MSB...
There's help on the right of the script editor:)
I would update - it won't hurt:)
