5.2.3 Integer Number

  If the value is a fixed format integer, the ASCII representation shall be right justified in columns 11-30. An integer consists of a `+' (hexadecimal 2B) or `-' (hexadecimal 2D) sign, followed by one or more ASCII digits (hexadecimal 30 to 39), with no embedded spaces. The leading `+' sign is optional. Leading zeros are permitted, but are not significant. The integer representation described here is always interpreted as a signed, decimal number.

A free format integer value follows the same rules as fixed format integers except that it may occur anywhere within columns 11-80.
