fixed point arithmetic

Calculation using packed numbers (data type p). Is calculated with an internal accuracy of 31 or (if not sufficient) 63 places. Decimal places are rounded commercially, if necessary. Places before the decimal point are never lost if a calculation is completed successfully. As a program attribute, fixed point arithmetic determines whether for numbers of type p the decimal point is respected by operations or not. The disabling of this program attribute is obsolete.
