Our numbers are written as A = [A.sub.h] + [Eta][A.sub.l], where [Eta] is the precision of our half-precision numbers, with [Eta] = [2.sup.-53] for IEEE double precision on most machines, but with [Eta] = [2.sup.-64] for machines that have a double-extended format like the Intel x87. We assume the latter for IEEE-style quad inputs.
