DDSXTY13 — Redefinition of the LC=6 and LC=7

  • Key: DDSXTY13-31
  • Status: open  
  • Source: Real-Time Innovations ( Gerardo Pardo-Castellote)
  • Summary:

    Currently LC=6 indicates the length is multiplied by 2 and LC=7 indicates it should be multiplied by 4.

    It would be better if LC=6 indicated the length is multiplied by 4 and LC=7 indicated it should be multiplied by 8.

    The reason is that members of length 8 (INT64) and DOUBLE are far more common that members of length 2 (INT16 and CHAR16).
