Abstract
(English)
Declmal-to-binary end binary-to-decimal floatinq-polnt conversion is often performed by using a table of the powers 10i (i a positive integer) for convertinq from base lO to base 2, end by using o table of the ceefflclents of a polynomial opproximation of lOx for convertinq from base 2 to base 10. These tables OCCUPY a lorge storaqe region in the case of a nonsingle precision ccnversion. This paper shows that a single small table suffices for o floatinq-point conversion from decimal to blnary, end vice versa, in any useful precision.
