This configuration variable sets the character to be used as the program's decimal point. Follow it with the desired character. If you use this variable to set the decimal point to a comma, then the place and function of the decimal point and comma are reversed (just like the phrase DECIMAL_POINT IS COMMA). The default is to use the decimal point specified by the program's source.

Note: You do not have to change the value of DECIMAL_POINT to match the decimal point used by floating point values received from external components. The runtime automatically makes the correct adjustment.
