specifies the field
width of the input value and also specifies whether the final value
is fixed-point or floating-point.
Default:8
Range:1–16
Tip:If w<16, HEXw. converts the input value to positive integer
binary values, treating all input values as positive (unsigned). If w is 16, HEXw. converts the input value to real binary (floating-point) values,
including negative values.

Operating Environment Information: Different operating environments store floating-point values in different
ways. However, HEX16. reads hexadecimal representations of floating-point
values with consistent results if the values are expressed in the
same way that your operating environment stores them.
The HEXw. informat ignores leading or trailing blanks.
