Testing the E500 floating point function drivers in assembly went well today. The drivers support fp operations on single and double floats, 10 digits for single and 20 digits for double precision mantissa in BCD, -99 to +99 exponent.

Great ! It looks very promising Smile
In fact, I don't know Forth very well. I just read the beginning of "Starting Forth", tried various Forth versions for MS-DOS, but I did not continue. It would be a nice occasion to learn Forth more seriously.
I hope I will succeed in transferring data with a serial cable.
