CVF

Syntax CVF (mkf_$)
Location BTool

This function takes any six character long string, (the internal format of a floating point number), and returns the value as a floating point number.

WARNING

CVF locks SuperBASIC if the supplied parameter is six bytes long but not a valid representation of a floating point number, eg. CVF(“BlaBla”).

MKF$ always returns a valid parameter for CVF which will not crash it.

CROSS-REFERENCE

PEEK_F, MKF$, CVI%, CVL, CVS$.

FPUTF and FGETF enable you to read and write floating point numbers in internal format to or from files.
