Minimum width editing

Minimum width editing

Certain edit descriptors have been extended to allow formatted output of numeric values, while minimising the amount of "white space" produced. This extension permits more information to be presented on a limited width display device (e.g. terminal), without concern about overflowing a user specified field width. Allowing a zero field width to be specified for the I, B, 0, Z and F edit descriptors provides this functionality. A field width specification of zero always specifies a minimum field width; it never specifies suppression of data output or an actual field width of zero.
