Can I read a value from a PCD text and copy it into a register?

FAQ #101187

For "reading" a value from a PCD text (e.g. copying "1234" from a PCD text with content "The next number is: 1234" into a Register) a new System Function has been added for PCD3 and PCD2.M5xx0.



What does this System Function (SF) do?
The new function "S.SF.DBLIB.ReadANumberFromText" allows reading a number from a text and copy it into a register. Starting from a provided pointer, the next number will be searched and copied.

Where do I find the documentation for this function?
This function is documented in PG5 2.0. The easiest way to open the documentation is opening the SEdit, selecting the "SF DB Access Library" and hitting "F1":
