'Usage Dim instance As CalcBin2OctFunction Dim args() As Object Dim value As Object value = instance.Evaluate(args)

#### Parameters

*args*The args contains 1 - 2 items: number, [places].

Number is the binary number you want to convert. Number cannot contain more than 10 characters (10 bits). The most significant bit of number is the sign bit. The remaining 9 bits are magnitude bits. Negative numbers are represented using two's-complement notation.

Places is the number of characters to use. If places is omitted, BIN2OCT uses the minimum number of characters necessary. Places is useful for padding the return value with leading 0s (zeros).
