This command is generally useless. Its supposed use is to convert numbers into decimal form, but any typed fractions are displayed as decimals anyway.

1/3 .3333333333 1/3►Dec .3333333333

In 2.53 MP or higher, typed fractions are displayed in fraction form. Therefore, the ►Dec command is useful in this case.
