RADIX

Purpose  

The RADIX command sets the default radix used as the numeric base for data input to and output from Ferret as either hexadecimal or decimal. If you type just the command RADIX, the current settings of the input and output are displayed.

Syntax  

 

Syntax element …

Specifies that numeric …

INPUT

input to Ferret defaults to the radix you select, either hexadecimal or decimal.

OUTPUT

output from Ferret defaults to the radix you select, either hexadecimal or decimal.

HEX

input to or output from Ferret defaults to a radix of hexadecimal.

DEC

input to or output from Ferret defaults to a radix of decimal.

Usage Notes  

When you start Ferret, the default radix for both input and output from Ferret is decimal.

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 Ferret data.

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

Example  

The following command example shows how to set the input to decimal:
