I received several messages concerning the IEEE floating point package.
To reduce responding time, I would like to answer some of the often
asked questions here :

  1.) The floating point package is a part of the PASCAL-XSC system
          which is traded by Numerik Software Gmbh. Therefore :

  2.) The package is not free, i.e. you can not get it and distribute
          it to other people as you like. If you want to do so
          nevertheless, you have to come to an arrangement with
          Numerik Software GmbH.

  3.) If you want to test the IEEE-arithmetic, directed roundings and
          so on, you should be a little patient.
          We are going to upload a demo version of the PASCAL-XSC system
          for MS-DOS computers at the SIMTEL20 archive.
          To run the demo system you must have a BORLAND C++ system
          version 2.0 ( or higher ) available.
