Read 80-bit Extended Floating Point Numbers from buffers
Until now, anyway.
Get this library with
$ npm install float80
>>> const Float80 =>>> f = Float80>>> f1>>> f<BigNumber: String: 1>
The number parsed by Float80 is stored in a BigNumber instance, and exposed by the
Generating 80 bit floats
Here is a trivial C program that you can use to view how 80-bit floats are represented:
Bonus: 48-bit floats.
The weird 48-bit float parsing is available in
