No, but I was able to extend John Payson's 16 bit routine using
Scott Dattalo's excellent explanation of the algorithm, and I'm
no math whiz.  I only needed an extra bit, to fully utilize a
5 digit display.  The coefficient calculations are no longer
highly optimized, but it is still much quicker than the "normal"
(to me) way of doing this.  With a bit of work, it could be
extended to 64 bits.

By the way, 64 bits???  That's a lot of digits!
