The MKS$ function encodes a SINGLE numerical value into a 4-byte ASCII STRING value.


result$ = MKS$(singlePrecisionVariableOrLiteral#)


  • singlePrecisionVariableOrLiteral# is converted to four ASCII characters. To see this in action, try PRINT MKS$(1345678).
  • SINGLE values can range up to 7 decimal point digits. Decimal point accuracy depends on whole value places taken.
  • MKS$ string values can be converted back to SINGLE numerical values using the CVS function.
  • SINGLE numerical variable values PUT into a BINARY file are automatically placed as an MKS$ ASCII string value.
