Purpose

The RADIX command displays or sets the default radix used as the numeric base for data input to and output from Filer. as either hexadecimal or decimal.

Syntax



INPUT
Numeric input to Filer defaults to the radix you select, either hexadecimal or decimal.
OUTPUT
Numeric output from Filer defaults to the radix you select, either hexadecimal or decimal.
HEX
Numeric input to or output from Filer defaults to a radix of hexadecimal.
DEC
Numeric input to or output from Filer defaults to a radix of decimal.

Usage Notes

When you start Filer, the default radix for both input and output from Filer is hexadecimal.

If you omit both the INPUT and OUTPUT options from the RADIX command, the radix (HEX or DEC) that you select applies to both numeric input and output.

You can select either INPUT or OUTPUT, but not both when changing the settings of Filer data.

If you omit both the HEX and DEC options, Filer displays the current RADIX setting.
