specifies the width of the input field.


specifies the power of 10 by which to divide the input value. This argument is optional. If you specify d, the PIBw.d informat divides the input value by the 10d value. SAS uses the d value even if the input data contains decimal points.


Under OpenVMS, the PIB informat reads native integer-binary values. However, this informat ignores the negativity of data in twos-complement notation and reads it as positive. For more information about OpenVMS native fixed-point values, see HP OpenVMS Programming Concepts Manual, Volume II, Part I, OpenVMS Programming Interfaces: Calling a System Routine.
