Alternate Octal Notation @

You can also specify integer constants with the following alternate octal notation. Precede an integer string with a double quote (") and compile with the -xl option. These are octal constants of type INTEGER.

Example: The following two statements are equivalent:

	JCOUNT = ICOUNT + "703 

You can also specify typeless constants as binary, octal, hexadecimal, or Hollerith. See "Typeless Constants (Binary, Octal, Hexadecimal) ".
