The five digits of precision alludes to an ASFixedNumberASFixed value. An ASFixedNumber ASFixed value is a hybrid of an Integer and a Real.


  • An integer is a binary number with bits encoding values from 0 to 2^32 (unsigned) or -2^30 to 2^30 (signed)
  • A real / floating point splits the bits between representing significant figures and a mantissa for the exponent

An ASFixedNumber ASFixed value shifts the meaning of the bits of a signed 32 bit integer value from representing 2^30 down to 2^0, to representing values between 2^15 (32,767) to 2^0.
