'[PIC]: Microchip 32 bit float format conversion'

Hi all,

I searching for converting a 32 bit float (Microchip format) in ASCII or INTEGER for displaying the float on an LCD with the decimal format (1,22 e -12 for example). I working with CCS PIC C Compiler.

My problem is I don't understand how the mantisse is encoded (I know the microchip format, don't send it to me).
If someone can explain me how the float is encoded or where can i find a function in C langage, it will be great !


Thanks in advance

Stephane

Andy Warren has an explanation of the floating point format on his
"answers" page:
