The $FLOATD function assigns an 8-byte floating point number to an 8-byte string, without any conversion. Like $FLOAT, this function is intended to be output to a USE data set. The $FLOATD function takes one argument containing a numeric value.

Note: Technical Support does not recommend using $FLOATD in new applications, although this function is supported for compatibility reasons.
