value = %UNSIGNED(expression)
The unsigned binary value of expression. (n)
A numeric expression. (n)
%UNSIGNED returns an unsigned value for the specified expression. For noninteger variables, the routine operates the same as %ABS. Literals are treated as integers. Negative 4‑byte integers on 32‑bit machines are returned as positive i8 variables. Negative i8 integers always generate an “Arithmetic operand exceeds maximum size” error ($ERR_BIGNUM).
In the following example, jvar is set to 254.
record ivar ,i1 ,-2 jvar ,i4 proc jvar = %unsigned(ivar) . . .
