The MKL$ function converts a numerical value to a LONG value represented as a 4 byte ASCII STRING.


Syntax

4byte_string$ = MKL$(long_value&)


  • The long integer number value is converted to four ASCII characters. To prove this try: PRINT MKL$(12345678).
  • The numerical data usually uses less bytes than printing the LONG number to a file.
  • A 10 digit long number can save 6 bytes using MKL$.
  • CVL can convert the value back to a LONG numerical value.
