in reply to Pack decimal possibility

There is a module, Convert::IBM390, that supports various conversion functions for data to/from a mainframe. One is packeb:

use Convert::IBM390 qw(packeb); my $comp3 = packeb( 'p4', 240 ); #77 A PIC S9(7) COMP-3. print $comp3; __END__ ~~output~~ 0x0000240c (of course, in binary)

It works well, and handles negative values.

Good luck. -c
