'[OT] Floating point formats'
I have a problem which doesn't belong here but I'm still turning to the
piclist 'cause I know I can find a lot of skilled ppl here, who maybe can
solve my problem.
I'm working on an 186 AMD based micro. This this is programmed in Borland
C++ 5. The problem I have is with floating points. As this this doesn't have
a fp processor onboard, I'm using Borlands fp emulation library (emu.lib).
What I am trying to do is send a 32 bit float value over a certain
connection, byte for byte. However, If I put them all together again on the
other side and hope to get the same float back, I am mistaken. Therefore, I
came to the conclusion the emu.lib uses a non standard (i.e. IEEE754), fp
format. And I am at a loss which one that should be. Extensive googling only
gave me a bunch of unreadable pages and highly arcane info.
Any ideas for this one?
