It looks like it will work for you:
Quote:
C2X('0123'X) -> '0123' /* 'F0F1F2F3'X in EBCDIC */

REXX Packed-to-Decimal Function:

Code:

/* REXX P2D */
Parse Arg number_p
erg = C2X(number_p)
sign = Right(erg,1)
number = Left(erg,Length(erg)-1)
If sign = 'D' Then
  Return '-'||number
Else
  Return number

C2X is one of REXX's built-in functions, and they are documented here.
