Floating Point Routines for the 6502 by Roy Rankin and Steve Wozniak

Floating Point Routines for the 6502 by Roy Rankin and Steve Wozniak

These are different than the handwritten notes from 1976.

Originally published in the August 1976 issue of Dr. Dobb's Journal, these
floating point routines allow 6502 users to perform most of the more popular and
desired floating point and transcendental functions, namely: Natural Log, Common
Log, Addition, Subtraction, Multiplication, Division, and conversions between
floating and fixed point numbers.

In the November/December issue of Dr. Dobb's Journal Roy Rankin published three
error corrections to the Floating Point Routines presented above.

Floating Point Implementation in the Apple II by Steve Wozniak

An almost identical set of the above routines appeared in the original manual
for the Apple II (the Red Book, January 1978). Documentation for these routines
appeared in another book, the Wozpak II, in November 1979.

See http://www.stockly.com/historicdvd.php information on getting this as well as other large documents on 5 DVDs for the cost of media.
