The T Function: Format
The T symbol is formed by overstriking the T and the o symbols..
Monadic (One-Argument) Forms: Format vB
The monadic format function result is a character array that is identical in appear-
ance to the one displayed when the value of argument B is requested:
Dyadic (Two-Argument) Form: Format AT B
The dyadic format function result, like the monadic format function result, is a
character array. However, argument A is used to control the format (the spacing and
precision) of the result. Argument A is a pair of numbers: the first number deter-
mines the total width of the format for each element and the second number deter-
mines the precision used.
1 08
If the precision number is positive, the result is in the decimal form, with the number
of decimal places specified by the precision number. If the precision number is
negative, the result is in scaled form, with the number of digits to the left of the E
specified by the precision number:
, (left margin)
"'2 I hE: ... 0 1.1 ". :I. I :?Pi I1 2
Width of nine positions
-(left margin)
If the width entry in argument A is zero, the 5100 uses a field width such that at
least one space will be left between adjacent numbers. If only a single number is used,
a width entry of zero is assumed.
