HEX NUMBERS AS WRITTEN

Function:

FPT reads HEX numbers in all of the formats listed above. These commands instruct FPT systematically to convert HEX numbers to the specified formats. Some of the formats are synonyms. They are, for example:

DEC '20414243'X
Fortran 90 Z'20414243'
Gould-SEL 8Z20414243
IBM '20414243'X
Intel #20414243X
Salford Z'20414243'
TopExpress ?'20414243'X

Octal numbers may similarly be changed by the command CHANGE OCTAL NUMBERS.

Note that no attempt is made to byte-swap the numbers in changing between big-ended and little-ended systems.

Changed HEX numbers are marked by diagnostics in the code. These may be suppressed by the SUPPRESS ERROR command.
