result$ = MKD$(doublePrecisionVariableOrLiteral#)


  • doublePrecisionVariableOrLiteral# is converted to eight ASCII characters. To see this in action, try PRINT MKD$(12345678).
  • DOUBLE values can range up to 15 decimal point digits. Decimal point accuracy depends on whole value places taken.
  • The string value can be converted back to a DOUBLE numerical value using CVD.
