Comment regarding the Jan 11 Binary to Decimal conversion code sample

In the Jan 11, 2005 SDN downloadable code sample for converting a Binary number to a Decimal number, form validate_data checks each individual byte of a field called "val" to determine if it is a '1' or '0'.

Instead, another way to do this (I think simpler and more efficient) is to use the CO operator as in the following example:

parameters: p_bin type i.

data: val type string.

val = p_bin.

if val co ' 01'. " Notice the space

  • The number is binary

else.

  • The number is not binary

endif.

Just my two-cents worth.

Best Regards,

James Gaddis
