Got a question concerning the byte data type in GNU Radio. I am writing
own PSK modulator and I am having an issue understanding how the byte
type appears as I am using it for my input.
I know byte is a char data type in C++ however how does it come in? Is
the binary data stream of a character? Is it exactly how it is typed in,
e.g. 1, 3, 5?
I am asking because the test data I am trying to modulate is a series of
prime numbers in a vector source block. So I am not entirely sure if I
to do the conversion to binary myself. I have tried to do a file sink to
see how char data appear but the file is just repeating characters that
make no sense.
