The CAT interface requires the availability of the following number formats:
ASCII is a standard 8 bit representation of characters and symbols in computing. Binary is the digital representation of a number as a string of '0' and '1'. The base is 2. BCD is a binary format for the representation of a decimal number. Decimal is the common decimal representation of the numbersystem 0....9 to the base of 10. Hex is a number representation to the base of 16. The hex number set is normally noted as 0...9,A,B,C,D,E,F.
For the CAT operations we also need the following notations for numbers:
# followed by a number is interpreted as a decimal number, not as ASCIIcharacter nor as Hex number!
#$ followed by a number is interpreted as a hex number, not as ASCIIcharacter nor as decimal number!
The following notations apply for the representation of numbers in parameter strings:
