DOUBLE

Purpose:

Macro. Provides an argument for functions specifying 64-bit (8-byte) double-precision data type.

Syntax:

DOUBLE

Expansion:

7

Example:

writeb("MYFILE", DOUBLE)

 

writes the series in the current Window to a file named MYFILE as 64-bit IEEE standard double-precision floating point values. The above example is equivalent to writeb("MYFILE",7).

Remarks:

DOUBLE is not a stand-alone Worksheet function. It can only act as an argument for functions, such as READB, WRITEB, and other functions with data type arguments.

 

When writing a file using DOUBLE as the file type be sure to read the file back into the Worksheet using the same binary format.
