Welcome

Welcome to information page about FMTBcd. Goal of this page is to contain information needed for implementing FPC version of the FMTBcd.



FMTBcd unit defines a number of binary-coded decimal (BCD) routines (find the source in ..\Delphi6\Source\Vcl):

Types

TBcd  = packed record
   Precision: Byte;
   SignSpecialPlaces: Byte;
   Fraction: packed array [0..31] of Byte;
 end;
PBcd: pointer to TBcd

Precision

Precision states how many decimal digits are valid out of the 64 nibbles available for use.

SignSpecialPlaces

SignSpecialPlaces is three fields packed into a byte.

  • The first bit is the sign (bit value 128).
  • The second bit is 'Special' (So special, I can't work out what it's for).
  • The third - eights bits contain the number of decimals (less the number of default digits???). 6 bits gives us up to 32 digits.

Fraction

array of BCD Nibbles, 00..99 per Byte, high Nibble 1st

Can anybody correct the following test cases?

What do you mean by 'correct'?

test cases

integers

If you look at a Tbdc record in the debugger, it will display the Precision as an integer, the SignSpecialPlaces as an interger and the Fraction as an array of integers. The fraction parts of the TBCD are really arrays of nibbles - one nibble per digit, two per byte. Following are some 'debug displays' and their translations. There is a space between bytes. So...

zero is boring...

      0 -> (Precision: 0;SignSpecialPlaces: 0;  Fraction:(0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0))

Displaying the structure in HEX helps...(you should never see any hex digits in the fraction part - only 0..9 is used)

Warnings: 1. All these functions can accept integer as a parameter, but they produce a wrong result. For converting integers, use

 function BCDToInt(Value: Integer):Integer; 

from the sysutils unit.

2. Converting invalid BCD arrays cause exceptions.
