Subject: ? How to have a FORTRAN function emulate flops for desired digits
In FORTRAN, there are two types of real floating number, single
and double precision. Single precision has 6 significant digits
while double precision has 16. ( when represented in 10 based )
From what I learned from some numerical analysis books, the
floating point system is machine dependent. Say there are other
system used in Cray and IBM mainframe that are other than the
IEEE SP/DP system.
Now how can I write a FORTRAN90 code that works in lower significant
number only. Say only works for 3, 4, or 10 digits?
