Karl,

> Close enough. It's a "scaled integer" and works fine for the original

question.

It may work for what he wanted but that wasn't really clear to me because he
didn't indicate what he had to do with them.

To me, the better approach is to use a combination of longs and, looking at
your reply to him, looks like you agreed. :-)
