OCT$ Function

Purpose:

To convert a decimal value to an octal value.

Syntax:

OCT$(x)

Comments:

x is rounded to an integer before OCT$(x) is evaluated.

This statement converts a decimal value within the range of -32768 to +65535 to an octal string expression.

Octal numbers are numbers to the base 8 rather than base 10 (decimal numbers).

See the HEX$ function for hexadecimal conversion.

Examples:

10 PRINT OCT$(18)
RUN
 22

Decimal 18 equals octal 22.
