The PIBw.d informat reads integer binary (fixed-point) values. Positive integer binary values are the same as integer binary (see IBw.d Informat: UNIX), except that all values are treated as positive. Thus, the high-order bit is part of the value rather than the value's sign. If the informat includes a d value, the data value is divided by 10d.
