Introduction:

The CA InterTest for CICS CORE transaction features a CALC option that doubles as an interactive Hexidecimal calculator and will display values in both Hexidecimal and Decimal format.  

Environment:
CA InterTest for CICS executing in CICS.
Instructions:

When viewing a CORE display, overtype the tranid of CORE with CALC to use the basic hexidecimal function of InterTest for CICS.  The CALC function displays the hexidecimal number and equivalent decimal number for the given value at the bottom of the screen.  This does not affect the current CORE display and to return to the CORE transaction, simply replace CALC with CORE.

In the example below, CORE is used to display storage beginning at address 3861982E (CORE=3861982E).

To add a value of 492C to the current address, simply replace the tranid of CORE with CALC and place +492C immediately after the address.   The results will be displayed in both Hexidecimal and Decimal format beneath the CALC= command.
