Quote:A few years ago I used my HP71, in BASIC, to generate large lookup tables (most being 65,536 cells each, and 16bit, meaning 128KB per table) for hyperfast, accurate, 16bit scaledinteger math, to use as a virtual coprocessor for hardware that didn't have a normal coprocessor. It took my HP71 a few weeks to generate the tables and convert to Intel Hex files. I posted them, along with a discussion of the value of scaledinteger math and how to use it effectively, and information on how each table was calculated, on my website, at http://wilsonminesco.com/16bitMathTables/ . This looks interesting. Is scaledinteger math the same Wikis are great, Contribute :)
