    read out of a slave register with a 2 byte address with an i2c bus

    Hi experts!

    Iīm kind of a noob so excuse mistakes i might make. so, my problem is i want to read information via an i2c bus out of a register with a 2 byte address. i would need something like "I2C Block Read" with 2 command bytes, but that doesnīt exist or i didnīt find it yet. The whole read operation should look something like:

    from master to slave:

    slave adress - msb of register address - lsb of register address - slave address (with read bit as lsb);

    from slave to master:

    the data in the register

    Thanks for your help!

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Have you looked at the i2c driver code yet? It's all there in its gory details...
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
