It would help to know why you are trying to do this (editing the number for example?).

Have you looked at the various editing and conversion capabilities available in the surfaced MI functions ( as well as the C/C++ library extensions? (!/ssw_ibm_i_72/rtref/rtrefmain.htm).

Everything you could need is there.

Hi all,

spend a lot of time and feeling like I run into a dead cycle with a
problem, that looks trivial.

I have packed decimals in my C programs that I need to convert to a
char array, representing the number (not zero terminated string).

For example:

decimal (15,9) A ;
char szTemp[32], sField[16] ;

sprintf(szTemp, "%016D(15,9)", A) ;
memcpy(sField, szTemp, 16) ;

What I want to achieve is get a function, that receives A and returns sField.
Of course it must support any types of decimal - not only decimal
(15,9) but others like decimal(11,7), decimal (15,0), decimal (5,0)
and so on. And, of course, decimal can be positive or negative...

Any ideas?
