Hi All,

I am trying to find exponential of number and writing to the file using REXX.

But am getting output with exponential format.

For eg: for 2** 32, the data is coming as 4.2949673E+9

Is any function is there to display it in normal form?

Regards,
Bipin Peter

Use NUMERIC DIGITS to set a maximum number of digits not less than the digits left of the decimal point and not less than half the number of digits to the right of the decimal point of your longest numeric string(s). Depending on how you're using the number(s), you may also have to change NUMERIC FUZZ.

You mean you want to have 2**32 in your output? You don't want it interpreted as a number? You did put quotes around it? Can you show your code?

This
Code:
/* REXX */
numeric digits 50
say 'Expression: 2**166'
say 'Result    :' 2**166

results in this when EX'ed:
Code:
Expression: 2**166
Result    : 93536104789177786765035829293842113257979682750464

You have to be clear about what you have, what you get and what you want!
All I can understand is that you want exponential format but instead you get exponential format...
