Read the ILE C Programmer's Guide and the ILE C Reference manuals.  They
discuss this topic.

ILE C has support for Decimal data types.  Include the decimal.h file and
declare appropriate decimal values.  For example:

#include <decimla.h>

        decimal (15,5) i;       /* Packed: 15 digits with 5 decimals */
        decimal (5) j;          /* Packed: 5 digits with 0 decimals */
