I prefer to use the decimal mode whenever the number I'm working with is meant to be printed out on the screen in decimal - for example, displaying the score in a game. In my experiments (of course, someone may be able to code more efficiently than me ;) it becomes much more efficient to print out a multi-byte BCD number in decimal than to convert a multi-byte binary number to decimal. -- Robin Harbron firstname.lastname@example.org http://www.tbaytel.net/macbeth http://www.psw.nu/ - This message was sent through the cbm-hackers mailing list.
