Two of them are simplified algos for converting floats to null-terminating strings with restrictions: the

**fl2a9**allows a maximum of 9 significant (integer+decimal) digits while the**fl2a18**allows a maximum of 18.Although the fl2a18 could be used also for converting most qwords to ascii, it wouldn't cover the entire range. The algo was thus modified for the

**qw2a**procedure so that the entire range of signed qwords (+/-9223372036854775807) would be covered.Raymond

negative limit -9223372036854775808

negative limit -9223372036854775808

qw2a will convert that one correctly also.:tongue:

It's 19 digits not 18
