Converts a number to a two-byte string.
||A positive integer in the range 0 through 65535. It can be specified as a value, a variable, or an expression.
returns a two-byte (wide) character string corresponding to the binary representation of n
. The bytes of the character string are presented in little-endian byte order, with the least significant byte first. It is the functional equivalent of:
is out of range or a negative number, $ZWCHAR
returns the null string.
The following example returns the two-byte string for the integer 25185:
is similar to $CHAR
except that it operates on two byte (16-bit) words instead of single 8-bit bytes. For four byte (32-bit) words, use $ZLCHAR
; For eight byte (64-bit) words, use $ZQCHAR
