8.2 on PUT specifies 2 digits after the decimal point. On INPUT it
specifies the division factor when not overridden by an explicit decimal
point. It was handy in the days when one worried about saving a byte with
an assumed decimal point. In today's world it is SASTrap.

Subject: help with w.d informat
Can anyone explain below
put x= y=;
This is what you get.
I know I could use input(x, 8.) instead but would like to understand how the
.d in (w.d informat) work.
