Conversion between strings and floating point

Conversion between strings and floating point


I want convert strings to floating point.

Help me!


RE: Conversion between strings and floating point

I had a problem like that once....

here's what I did:

I used the BCD format!!!  Since the coprocessor can use it directly, and it is quite similar to a string, it wasn't so bad....

(that's a hint on what you might want to do.  Try it first.  If you can't, post again.  If you don't know what in all possible worlds BCD is, and how the coprocessor uses it, then you're in over your head, and you'd better post again).
