Wrote this very simple DMC calculator

Wrote this very simple DMC calculator
by on (#178786)
I don't know if this is too simple to post, but maybe this will help somebody. It's a simple console calculator for converting DMC sample size and address. For python 3. Easily converted to python 2.

I have the length input in decimal, because this is commonly how famitracker reports the size of a dmc file.

Code:
#!/usr/bin/python3

# calculate the length and position of DMC file

length = ""
position = ""

length = input('enter length of file, in decimal : ')
position = input('enter position of file, in hex, without a 0x prefix : ')

a = int(length)
a = a >> 4
print ("DMC sample length = " + hex (a))

b = int(position, 16)
b = ((b-0xc000) >> 6)

print("DMC Sample address = " + hex(b))
print("\n")
