Hi all,

If my memory over 20 years ago in PI/open development is reliable (probably not), I seem to recall that the string arithmetic functions were invented to handle either very large integer numbers or fractional numbers with a large number of decimal places. I think it was the high precision daily interest calculations required by banking systems that motivated the development.

I thought that large integer addition is why the functions SADD, SCMP and SDIV were invented?
