Conversion of Binary to Decimal

Postby abejacb » Mon Dec 21, 2020 12:24 am

I have a file and file declared in SAS as follows.
@01 panelist ib4.
@05 system   ib2.
@07 units    rb4.
@11 dealbits pib1.
@12 footprnt pib2


Now I need to convert all of these into decimal using DFORT. Can you please provide the OUTREC FIELDS.

What do you mean by “decimal” in this context?

Please, clarify.

Note: it could be
P’1234’=X’01234C’
Z’1234’=X’F1F2F3C4’
C’1234’=X’F1F2F3F4’
... and many others...

Please give sample input/output. Use code tags when posting code and data so that everything aligns and is easier to read.
The problem I have is that people can explain things quickly but I can only comprehend slowly.

Thanks for the quick response.

Example : if the variable is declared as 9(04) comp, I need to get it converted to 9(04) using DFSORT.

I recommend you to start from reading manuals rather than writing to forums... :(

Look in the manual at INREC / Reformatting / Example 4 as a start point

Anyway, I strictly recommend you to read manuals, carefully. There are hundreds, or thousands other tips and tricks you could learn, besides of those few answers to specific questions you can get at the forum.
