Summary 04155: CHEAT.C: tobcd/frombcd errors with invalid number of parameters
Description When running any cheats which use tobcd or frombcd it will cause errors like :-
Error executing expression "maincpu.pb@1000FF=frombcd(param)": invalid number of parameters

The error was introduced by 0.140u1 - it works fine in 0.140.
Steps To Reproduce Make a wjammers.xml cheat file containing this:-

<mamecheat version="1">

  <cheat desc="Infinite Set Time">
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.pb@10008D=99</action>
    </script>
  </cheat>

  <cheat desc="Select Points to Win Match"> <comment>Select the score that you would like to play to. The match will end when a player reaches the total or the time is up - so use in conjunction with Infinite Set Time for the Best Effect.</comment>
    <parameter min="6" max="99" step="3"/>
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.pb@1000FF=tobcd(param)</action>
    </script>
  </cheat>

  <cheat desc="Dirty Test of frombcd">
    <parameter min="6" max="99" step="3"/>
    <script state="run">
      <action>maincpu.pb@1000FF=frombcd(param)</action>
    </script>
  </cheat>

</mamecheat>


Activate either of the cheats using tobcd or frombcd and you will see the console window quickly fills up with errors

Some time between 0.140u1 and 0.152 this has been fixed, all is good.
