Blocks and Kilobytes and Megabytes?

» close window

The Question is:

how do you convert blocks into megabytes?

The Answer is :

  The section "How many bytes are in a disk block?" -- this section
  is included in the OpenVMS FAQ -- will be of interest to you.  (Per
  the listing of the prefixes -- such as "mega" -- in the OpenVMS FAQ
  section "What are the prefixes for the powers of ten?", you can convert
  the number of bytes into the number of megabytes through division by
  one million.)
