Native Rexx does not, I think, provide a built-in function to do what do want. Some third-party extensions such as OpenSoftware's REXXTOOLS package do, but you may not have them installed. Basically, you must that returned string, strip off leading zeroes, interpret the sign (C = positive, D = negative, F = unsigned, treated as positive in computations), and insert the decimal point (a radix point in a fixed-point number is always implied; you have to know where goes).

If no one else comes up with a good answer in the next few hours, I'll look at it again when I get to my office.

search my posts for pack/unpack rexx examples

as far as the decimal point ...
COBOL knows because You declare things
REXX does not because it is a declareless language.

You will have to do Your own formatting for each variable! full stop
