Hex representation of integer
Note: Many $functions have been deprecated in favor of Object Oriented methods. The OO equivalent for the $D2X function is IntegerToHex. For a full list of string and numeric conversion functions see List of String methods and List of Float methods.
The $D2X function returns a string which is the hexadecimal equivalent of an integer.
$D2X accepts two optional arguments and returns a string value.
The first argument is the integer to be converted to hexadecimal. If it is omitted, or if after conversion to an integer it can't be represented as a 32 bit 2's complement value, the null string is the result.
The second argument is the number of output characters in the string. If it is omitted, the output is 8 characters. If, after conversion to an integer, it is 0 or less, or can't be represented as a 31 bit value, the null string is the result. If it is greater than 8, then the output is 8 characters. If it is less than 8, then the leftmost digits of the hexadecimal equivalent are dropped.
%result = $D2X(int_val, width)
%result is set to the width-char hexadecimal representation of int_val.
The following program will print the value 0C1:
B PRINT $D2X(193, 3) END
