H All,

I am new to PL/I. I would like to know the different data types we can use to declare the variables.

Can any one suggest me to get some good manuals or links to start understanding about PL/I?

Thanks in advance!!!

Hi Alex,

I am giving the information based on my understandings.

For Numeric data:

1. FIXED DECIMAL
2. FIXED BINARY
3. FLOAT DECIMAL
4. FLOAT BINARY

For Character data:

1. CHAR or CHARACTER

For BIT data:

1. BIT

These are the elimentary data types available in PL/I.

Let me know if you need more information.

Please correct me if I am wrong.

Thanks,
Sati

Hello,

At the top of the page is a link to "IBM Manuals". The PL/I Language Reference and the Programming Guide are available there. . .
