Hi gang:

This is a simple problem, but the solution escapes me. Please review 
the following code.

I don't want to use "using" -- what I want is a variable that has the 
value of 123.2222 derived from a string.

I've tried using "dim value as fixed", but I can't get that to work 
-- it acts like an integer.

Thanks to all those who consider.

'--- main ---

window 1,"Test",(0,0)-(300,300)
dim value as single
dim a$

a$ = "123.2222"
print "In = ";a$
value = val(a$)
print
print "Out = ";value
print
print "But, what I want is 123.2222"

do
HandleEvents
until gFBQuit
