Japanese term or phrase: 0は無効とし、1とする
[変数名]: 1-200(0は無効とし、1とする)

0か1が設定された時は送信間隔は空かない。

I don't really understand the syntax used in 0は無効とし、1とする. "0 is considered to be disabled, consider 0 to be 1"??
But then later, it says if "0" or "1" is set, which makes it look like you can set 0 and 1 as possibilities. This doesn't make much sense to me, I hope someone can explain.

Thank you.

agree  Marc Brunet: Surprisingly, some Japanese algorithms do start their serial count, using 0 as its first valid value of the series.

agree  RieM: yes, zero is deemed to be one... Probably using zero is not convenient.
