In the MODE catalogue. Press D and you'll get to DBLOFF, you want DBLON which is immediately below.

BTW there is no way to programmatically displays the 18 trailing digits in DP mode?

I'm sure a program could be written to display the extra digits:
To get the second 12 digits: set round to zero mode, round to 12 digits, subtract from the original number. Do this again to get the final 10 digits. Pauli

The round mode is set by the RM command which is part of the MODE menu. (01162017 09:37 PM)Paul Dale Wrote: round to 12 digits, Round to 12 significant digits. This is accomplished by the RSD command that can be found in the X.FCN menu. (01162017 09:37 PM)Paul Dale Wrote: subtract from the original number. Yes. ;) So all in all it's a procedure like this: Code: RM 4 // set round mode to truncation Dieter
