A:

Code:
56  2


B:

Code:
56 


Edit to include B. I thought you knew what B contained as you'd just MOVEd 56 to it.

Why not code it up and run it? When you code it code your DISPLAYs in the following manner:
Code:
DISPLAY 'n >' n '<'.

where n is your variable. That way you will see any blanks.

No, the value of A is 5 6 blank blank 2, while the value of B is 5 6 blank blank. Since there is a REDEFINE, the variables share the same memory (A has 5 bytes and B has 4 bytes, so the first 4 bytes of A will ALWAYS have the same value as B).
