Reply with quote

I am required to convert a PLI program to a cobol program. As I am new to PLI, I don't know what the data structure of the fixed decimal is in PLI.

For example, a "dec fixed (7,0) " data occupys 4 digits, if the value is "123456.0", what's the hex value for this data? Is it a Hex'00123456'? Or a Hex'0123456C', the same as the comp-3 in Cobol?

Thanks!

Thanks very much. And someone just told me that I should never forget the sign.

C for positive number, D for negative ( also E ). F for unsigned.
