NAME dbf - convert FFP dual-binary number to FFP format SYNOPSIS fnum = dbf(exp, mant); FUNCTION Accepts a dual-binary format (described below) floating point number and converts it to an FFP format floating point number. The dual-binary format is defined as: exp bit 16 = sign (0=>positive, 1=>negative) exp bits 15-0 = binary integer representing the base ten (10) exponent man = binary integer mantissa INPUTS exp - binary integer representing sign and exponent mant - binary integer representing the mantissa RESULT fnum - converted FFP floating point format number BUGS None
