.CONVERT SPLIT NUMBER

This subroutine splits a number into its whole number and fractional parts.


Usage:

    PASS        <whole_number>            FIELD           SHARE? Y
    PASS        <fractional_part>         FIELD           SHARE? Y
    PASS        <number_to_split>         FIELD           SHARE? N
    GOSUB   --- .CONVERT SPLIT NUMBER
     *       check for errors
    IF      --- .CONVERT SPLIT NUMBER     NE

Description:

This subroutine splits a number into its whole number and fractional parts. All parameters are required, if any are missing the subroutine will CANCEL.

<whole_number> returns the whole number part <number_to_split> (Required). This must be PASSed with Share "Y" to return a result. For example, if <number to split> is 123.00456, this will return 123.0.

<fractional_part> returns the fractional part <number_to_split> (Required). This must be PASSed with Share "Y" to return a result. This should be a numeric field with sufficient decimal places to hold the fractional part of <whole number>, otherwise rounding will occur. For example, if <number to split> is 123.00456, this will return 0.00456.

<number_to_split> is the number to be split. This must contain valid numeric characters (Required).
