ok, can someone please check that this is right (80-bit floats)

(positive) denormals: 0000 0000 0000 0000 0001 to 0000 7FFF FFFF FFFF FFFF

(positive) snans: 7FFF 8000 0000 0000 0001 to 7FFF BFFF FFFF FFFF FFFF

indefinite: FFFF C000 0000 0000 0000

and what happens when the exponent is all 1s but the integer is 0?

i.e. from 7FFF 0000 0000 0000 0000 to 7FFF 80000000 00000000 (and when the sign is reversed)

thanks!

Just ask again if it was not clear enough.
