CORBA23 — CDR encoding for fixed

  • Key: CORBA23-165
  • Legacy Issue Number: 1653
  • Status: closed  
  • Source: Anonymous
  • Summary:

    Summary: The CDR encoding rules for fixed-point types are incomplete.

    In particular, it is not stated which value encodes what digit in each
    nibble of an octet. It seems sensible to use 0x0 -> "0", 0x1 -> "1", ...,
    0x9 -> "9". However, this isn"t stated (but should be).

    The same comment applies to page 7-10 for DynFixed. I would suggest that
    rather than repeat the same explanations in the CDR section and the DynFixed
    section, the spec should use a cross-reference in the DynFixed section that
    points at the CDR rules.
