Convert datatype

Hey,

Is there any way to convert datatype UInt8 to UInt16?

as a uint8 fits inside a uint16, the question is why?

  • uint8 1 == uint16 1
  • uint8 2 == uint16 2
    ...
  • uint8 255 == uint16 255

PS, there is no concept of uint8 in JavaScript. there is only number (and BigInt)
