SYNOPSIS

int modbus_read_bits(modbus_t *ctx, int addr, int nb, uint8_t *dest);

DESCRIPTION

The modbus_read_bits() function shall read the status of the nb bits (coils) to the address addr of the remote device. The result of reading is stored in dest array as unsigned bytes (8 bits) set to TRUE or FALSE.

The function uses the Modbus function code 0x01 (read coil status).
