Where can I find a discussion of the floating point bit stucture. <1sign bit><8exponent bits><23mantissa bits>
it takes all of us
Read my thesis at http://homepages.nyu.edu/~jsa226/
Or take my word for it that it is SXXXXXXX XMMMMMMM MMMMMMMM MMMMMMMM
where S is the sign bit, X is the exponent, and M is the mantissa, as
What is it that you are interested in discussing?
You left out the business of the implicit high-order bit of the
There are approximately 1,800,000 sites on the Web documenting this
information, although they may be a little tricky to find until you
have the magic incantation "IEEE"

There are also quite a few threads on this in the list archives. Seek
