Convert 1 byte (binary?) to char in Cobol

Postby LasseH » Thu Feb 20, 2014 2:44 pm

Don't know if the subject is correct, but...

Trying to display the content in 2 fields with this content

1---5----0----5
004441....
110000....


I want to be able to display byte 1-2 as 0101 and byte 6 as 10 (not 257 and 16)
These fields are now defined as A PIC XX and B PIC X

You have been around long enough to know that you should have used the code tags to preserve the layout. I have coded it for you.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.
