ABSTRACT

        This  package  is  a  floating mantissa definition of a binary
FLOAT.  It was first used on the DEC-10 and the VAX  but  should  work
for  any  since  the  parameters are obtained by initial sizing on the
actual hardware.  Otherwise the parameters could be set in the spec if
known.   This  is a preliminary package that defines the properties of
the particular floating point type.
        The constants are those required by the routines described  in
"Software Manual for the Elementary Functions" W.  Cody and W.  Waite,
Prentice-Hall 1980.  Actually  most  are  needed  only  for  the  test
programs rather than the functions themselves.  Most of these could be
in the form of attributes if all the floating types to  be  considered
were  those  built  into  the compiler.
