WOCT


Converts a number to a Unicode octal representation

Syntax:
declare function Woct ( byval number as ubyte ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as ushort ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as ulong ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as ulongint ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as const any ptr ) as wstring

declare function Woct ( byval number as ubyte, byval digits as long ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as ushort, byval digits as long ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as ulong, byval digits as long ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as ulongint, byval digits as long ) as wstring
declare function Woct ( byval number as const any ptr, byval digits as long ) as wstring

Usage:
result = Woct( number [, digits ] )

Parameters:
number
Number to convert to octal representation.
digits
Desired number of digits in the returned string.

Return Value:
The Unicode octal representation of the number, truncated or padded with zeros ("0") to fit the number of digits, if specified.

Description:
Returns the octal Wstring (Unicode) representation of number. Octal digits range from 0 to 7.

If you specify digits > 0, the result string will be exactly that length. It will be truncated or padded with zeros on the left, if necessary.

The length of the returned string will not be longer than the maximum number of digits required for the type of number (3 characters for byte, 6 for short, 11 for long, and 22 for longint)

Examples:
Print WOct(54321)
Print WOct(54321, 4)
Print WOct(54321, 8)

will produce the output:

152061
2061
00152061
