'[PIC] 64 Bit Float QUESTION'

Maybe a stupid question but what is the purpose of this calculator.
Is it a replacement of a sientific calculator. If so just buy one in
the shop and dont waist the time.
On the other hand if it is used to control a lathe or any other
mechanical machine keep in mind that none of those are using a
precision you are trying to get.

I am a mechanical engineer myself and whe never use a precision of
more than 4 decimals after the .

Dear Harry,

Solarwind explained a while back that this is a learning exercise. I
think it's actually a good learning exercise, but it is going to take
a lot of effort to make it a real workable calculator.

I think he has already learned a great deal.  Not necessarily along  
the lines of what he was expecting to learn, but ... thats the way it  
works sometimes.
