On an IBM mainframe
system, integer values are represented in two's complement notation.
If the informat specification includes a d value,
the number is divided by 10^{d}.

Note: In these examples, Data Line
(Hexadecimal) represents the bit pattern stored, which is the value
that you see when you view it in a text editor that displays values
in hexadecimal representation. Value is the number that is used by
SAS after the data pattern has been read using the corresponding informat.
