Subject: Double precision floating point

I have a LSI-11/2 with single precision floating point hardware.
However, I need double precision (either 64 or 80 bits). Does anyone
have the algorithms for F+, F-, F*, and F/ that could be used? It would
be nice if they used the existing hardware instructions, but that is not
necessary.

I am especially interested in 32-bit
forth standards, and ways to work within a multitasking system
cleanly (esp. without virtual memory).
I have written a 32-bit, subroutine threaded forth
for the amiga (68000 at 8MHz), that runs 10 iterations
of the sieve in 9 sec, without using assembler.
