When editing a numerical variable
an edit line is displayed in the middle of the edit panel. This edit line serves for entering or changing the value of a number.
The text of a number is entered without spaces. The number can be preceded by a sign, + or -. The number mantissa can include up to 15 numerals and a decimal point or a comma. The mantissa can be followed by an exponent separated by E or e. The exponent is an integer ranging between -308 and +308.
A number can be entered in the hexadecimal form by inserting the $ (dollar) character in front of the number. Thus e.g. the entry $1F corresponds the number 31. Similarly, by inserting the % (the percent character) a number can be entered in the binary form. Thus e.g. the entry %1001 corresponds the number 9.
