Don't understand second table[edit source]

Sorry but I thought at first reading I would have understood the meaning. But now that I've looked at in more detail, I have no idea what the Values respectively the Bundled Cable values mean ?!?! --LuminousLizard de-native / "en-B2" (talk) 21:50, 9 December 2015 (UTC)

I believe it's just stating the equivalent arabic numerals for the latin letters, like 1 = 12. I do agree that this needs some more clarification, as it took me a minute to understand it. Tables should be quickly understandable, that's like the whole reason they exist :P -- SatanicSantaFTB Wiki Admin 01:35, 10 December 2015 (UTC)
3 days, 60 cups of tea and 3 mental breakdown later I have solved the mystery :D ! It's an interaction with ComputerCraft or OpenComputers. With peripherals you can read/send signals in the bundled cables, and every arabic numbers or latin letter has an value which can be received/send between computer and Segment Display. There are 216 (65536) combination options of the 16 bars on the Segment Display, and e.g. the 17663 option results in a "0" on the Segment Display. I'll rewrite the text in some detail. --LuminousLizard de-native / "en-B2" (talk) 21:10, 11 December 2015 (UTC)
