- result# = CVDMBF(stringData$)
- CV functions (CVD, CVS, CVI, CVL, CVDMBF, CVSMBF) are used to convert values encoded by MK$ functions (MKD$, MKS$, MKI$, MKL$, MKDMBF$, MKSMBF$).
- QB64 has _CV and _MK$ functions which can also deal with extended data types.
- DOUBLE values can range up to 15 decimal point digits. Decimal point accuracy depends on whole value places taken.
Example 1: Showcases the reduced space to store an encoded number.
Value of a#: 77000.24523213 Value of a# encoded using MKDmbf$: 5─c▼d▬æ The string above, decoded using CVDMBF: 77000.24523213
- Since the representation of a double-precision number can use up to 15 ASCII characters (fifteen bytes), writing to a file using MKDMBF$ conversion, and then reading back with the CVDMBF conversion can save up to 7 bytes of storage space.
